    I'm sad enough to know the drum sounds are from EZ Drummer.

  9. GUYS IF YOU DO 2X SPEED IT IS THE SAME SPEED AS THE ACTUAL SONG

  10. A way to practice this is to just normally picking up and down on the e string, I've practiced that and this song was easy because I know the basics.

  11. this song isn't as hard as I thought. it's really just for people who want to flex their guitar skills without excerting much effort.

  12. Thanks! This got me Laid!
