Below is the intro tab to "The Jack" by AC/DC.

Can someone explain how to finger the 2/6 and 2/7 noted in the first measure? Or am I just missing something here?

Use your pinky for the 6 and 7, and index finger for the 2.


Good choice for finger structure (pinky on 6 & 7), however, I have long fingers and struggle for that reach, and I'm sure the Young brothers have smaller hands and would have a problem with that same combination.

Another possibility, search for another tab on that great song, or hit a few other frets to see what sound you can find.

strech. or, play it on the 6th string so that the frets aren't as wide.

gain:9
treble:8
mids:5
bass:6
volume:0

this is the best when playing paramore

maybe they both played the other line.
