Whoa! This one took me like 3 hours! I tabbed out every strum and note.

Most of it seems right, though some fingerings could probably be played

a different way. I'm not too sure about the areas marked with *'s.

Performance Notes:

 

At about 1:00 guitar 2 begins playing the chords guitar 1 is picking.

These chords are:

 

-----------

-3-----1---

-3--7--0---

-5--7--2---

-5--8--3---

----0------

 

The end of the song is just basically a little jam with all

three guitars. Guitars 1 and 3 each do a little walkdown near

the end. There's a pick scrape in there too.

 

The strumming pattern is fairly straight-forward.

You shouldn't have any problems. Good freakin' luck.

Tabbing it was brutal, playing it should be too... :)
