Ok, so this might sound like a really silly beginner question, but I need help with the main riff in Highway to Hell.

I am trying to play the main riff in this tab: https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/a/acdc/highway_to_hell_album_tab.htm

How am I supposed to play? I mean the only way I can think of is to pluck the notes at the same time? But that isn't the way it's supposed to be played, right?

I mean, the A string isn't supposed to be picked, right? The problem I have is to play the notes after the first ones. Like first you play the A, D and G strings, then you play the E string 2 times, after you play the A, D and G strings 1 time. The A string between the E and the rest of the strings isn't supposed to be picked when you play those notes, right?
Use your index finger to fret the notes on the low E but also rest it on the A string so it mutes it - then just play them as normal chords.
Actually called Mark!

if you're lazy like me you can use your thumb for the low E string
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.
