Key:
	B  -  Bend

	P  -  Pull Off
	VV -  Vibrato
	/  -  Slide Up
	\  -  Slide Down


NOTES:

0  Upstroke on the intro here

1  Let those two open strings ring out if you like

2 This is the live variant with the hammeron/off licks

3 This is the extended bridge area where Jones swells with his 
mellotron.  Otherwise, skip past this to 4.

4 Heading back to the verse here

5 The heavy part, insert fills, 1st and/or 7th position

6 The coda.  How he played up there on an acoustic in the album version is
beyond me.  There must be a way to play it in a lower position, but I
can't figure it out.  This is definitely how he does it (positionwise) in
TSRTS.  To play the last chord ala the album, strum right next to the
bridge for a biting tone with all open strings.  To play it ala live
version, strum with your pick halfway between the bridge and the 12th fret
for a keyboardy harmonicy rubbery tone.  If you watch TSRTS I believe he
casts his pick away for the the last part of the coda so he's
fingerpicking it.  Singleframe through it, you'll see the pick fly!

 
Also remember to use delay on most of this song, and distortion for the
heavy part.
