just leave your index finger down the entire time while playing that last chord and let your ring finger do some bouncing. You can mute the low E string with your thumb if that helps. Or you could fret it with your thumb. Either way. Good luck!

Oops, sorry I never pasted a tab before so I didn't know they break up like that. I edited my post, thanks! I'll try your advice, thx!

Quick question:

In the second and third groups of chords/notes, there is a X on the A string. I'm assuming that means to not play that string, correct? How can I strum the strings below and above it without playing the A string? I'm sorry that I'm such a newb.

Mute the string with your index finger when you strike the chord... in other words, don't press it down, just kind of rest your finger against it and hit all four strings at once

Thanks guys. So I just tried what you guys said and tried to finger it and play it. I found it extremely difficult. Just to ask you guys, is the above piece considered beginner stuff or intermediate?

D: I don't like that question. It shouldn't matter what 'level' of music you play. You should do your best to execute your technique. Besides, talent is all relative, what I consider advanced, others may contend is basic. Try to stay above the labels. If something is difficult, take it slow and speed up in small increments, don't let technique get sloppy.

If you learn a little theory you will find it easier to learn. Chords usually have 5 ways to play it in different places on the fret board. Tabs arent gospel. Maybe there is a easier way to play it if you take it apart and look at it.

First chord is a power chord, index ring pinky. The second is the same, but move the index finger from the A to the E string, also make sure it's touching the A string so that it's muted. The third is just moving the index finger up to the 9th fret, keep muting the A string. I'd suggest not playing the 5th fret on the E string but rather an open A in the last chords, that should make it easy.
I'm a communist. Really.
