This is a trick in the style of The Pixies. We're going to drone that high E string while we play little melodies on the B string.

Radiohead did this type of thing a lot. Start out with playing a unison, by putting your finger on the 5th fret of the B. Then move it around in different scales. System of a Down do this a lot as well.

Check out the example, when we move into the verse of the song.
