Anyone who attempts this one, I would really appreciate your feedback

 

because I'm tabbing it quickly and I may well have made some mistakes.

 

I CRDed the whole song because the chords change from verse to verse.

 

There are of course other little twiddly bits than the 2 fills I've

 

tabbed, but I'm sure you'll get the picture...

 

 

 

I'm not even going to attempt to tab Ry Cooder's slide guitar for

 

this- are there any tab conventions for slide?
