                   (short bar)
     
     
Verse patterns (1st one is also main riff)
     
|----------------|0---------------|     |--------0-------|

              ("where...          (spring is sprung)")
     
     
there are some minor picking variations: the most common is for 
the second bar of the first verse-pattern to become:
     
|0------------0--|
|-------0--------|
|-----0---0------| (usually just before going into the 
|---2-------2----|  second verse-pattern) 
|--2---2---2---2-|
|0---0---0---0---|
