Burden in My Hand is slow to start. it's just simple 8th notes on the high hat.

after the 1st verse though, it becomes apparent why this song utterly rocks your socks off. The main groove in the chorus and verse has plenty of ghost note snares to flesh out the beat and a few tricky fills thrown in to mix it up.

althogh nothing truly mindblowing is attempted with this song, doesn't change that it is an enjoyable addition to anyone's Rock Band library.

Mostly chords, lots of movement/switching Madotsuki
Throughout Burden in My Hand on guitar, you're playing alot of 3-note, and 2-note chords, with tons of movement all over the place, theres some tricky switching here and there and a few quick HO/POs at some points, and the chords are a bit fast, sometimes requiring some alt-strumming.
Overall, this song is alot of fun, its mostly chords, but theres a whole lot of movement throughout the song, making for a fantastic guitar chart thats quite a bit different from the rest of Soundgarden's songs.
If you're mainly a guitar player, this is a great, fun song to have in your library.
