An easy to play metal song, for electric guitar.
With only one finger, yeah just one, you are going to become a rock
star.  You choose what finger. I prefer to use my middle finger
because it's the longer one. So you just need that middle finger
gesture for a fucking good metal sound that breaks some glass and some
dick heads - those who pollute - as well. Ok, that is for your left
hand. For you right hand you need three fingers, you cannot make it
with less.

Scale: Sol Si Re Mi

Chord used:
I've just chosen the shortest name for these chords
I do not have any idea of scale stuff and alike for this song

Amp preset: Metal. You may also want to go Insane, depending on how
much glass you wanna break ;-)

NOTE: before a final long Sol at the end of each stanza, mute Si and
Mi strings of Em with your fingerpad. Hit the Sol hard and let it
ring at length.

In all this song you just alternate two licks. They also serve as a
bridge. As an intro, start with some craws cawing, if you manage to
record some, then use the first lick alone or the following
simplification:
