This is a way to play the whole intro using just natural harmonics on your guitar
Tip: If playing on acoustic, stop reading this and get playing, if on electric - and plugged in, make sure you have the best pickup selected to make the harmonics ring out (typically the bridge pickup). Also, try a bit of overdrive/distortion to help those notes ring out.
3 Blocks contains 12 frets each.
1st block has all the intervals based on the natural notes i.e. C, D, E, F, G, A, B.
The 2nd block adds the b (flat) intervals.
The 3rd adds the # (sharp) intervals.

Guns 'N' Roses play with their guitars detuned a half-step, that means instead of E, A, D, G, B e. they used Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb eb.
