Hurt is one of the songs I've put a fair bit of time into, as I enjoy listening to and playing it.
I can also manage to play it along with the track, which is also a nice bonus, however I cut the verses short for recording, as it does get monotonous playing the same two bars for 12 and 10 times.
So69, I've never really concentrated on, but quite like it as a finish to any practise time just to get a bit power chord/palm muting action going (also gives me an excuse to get some distortion dialled in!). I'm probably going to spend a bit time on it over the next couple weeks, as I'd quite like it in my playable collection.
Rossco, the hardest part of Hurt, is the transition from chorus to verse. I've spent the past few weeks just going from a couple bars of the verse to chorus and back again, just to nail the pumping 8s to A string pick. However you can cheat, either by missing the final strum, or delaying the Am pick/pick/strum sequence as you've got a couple rest beats after the Am sequence and then get back on the correct beat for the C/D sequence.
