The intro to "Creep" features two of our guitars playing a series of open chords, all played with a laid back feel. Here are some key points to help you through it:

1. The acoustic strums the chords with a laid back feel, using some syncopated rhythms while also adding in some open strings in between the chords. Make sure to follow the drums here, as the acoustic and drums really set the pace for the song.

2. Guitar #2 plays arpeggios of the C and B7 chords, and then lets the Emi7 ring into each measure. The second ending has the Emi7 ringing for two measures, going into the first verse.

3. The Emi7 is played slightly anticipated going into each measure, slowly doing an upstroke from the higher strings to the lower strings.

4. Guitar #1 also plays the same effect for the last Emi7, sneaking into the chord.
