Does anyone have the tab for the Come As You Are riff played by Justin at https://www.justinguitar.com/guitar-lessons/riff-come-as-you-are-b1-506, There is one is the chat below but I'm sure that is not quite right!

Hi Stu tabs are correct in terms of which note to pick one by one, after you finish on 0, 1 on thickest string (based on the tab published in comments) you then pick 2nd fret on thickest string and repeat the whole pattern again, so you are pretty much again on note 4 counting from the start.

Try to watch it with Justin's video simultaneously, make sure your guitar is in tune and it should work out well.

 Apologies I would try to write it down for you but actually I am on my phone away from home. If there is still something unclear or not playing right in your head post another question

Thanks. Managed to work this out in the end. Missed the bit in the text where is says keep the fretting finger down when plucking the adjacent string, so was making it more difficult for myself.

Here you are:


Thank you. Looks like the last two bars are a repeat of the first two.

Just that.
The very first bar is called a 'pick up bar'.

It introduces all that follows and is a unique small section to get things moving. As Justin explains in his video, the riff does not start on the count of 1.
So the pickup bar is written to show the riff starting later on in the bar. After that, there are simply two bars that repeat and repeat and repeat. I should really have put the repeat symbol on my tabs but I thought it was such a simple riff that they were ultimately not necessary.

Yeah this is a fun one and one of the first I learned to play.
After the pickup you can just keep repeating the bars until your fingers bleed.
