Tuning: Haha, you want the tuning for this song, good luck.  It's somewhere
        between Eb and D, just turn every string down about .75 steps

Man this beginning was a bitch to figure out, don't know why, I probably made
it alot hard than it actually is.  This could be played with a 12 string, not
sure.  If you know the exact way, email me ""

NOTE: I was informed that this beginning is played in the open Em position, 
oh well. I'm too lazy to change this :)

Let all the notes rings out as long as possible
each note and chord is of the same length, say 8th notes.

|-Start tremeloing-on the G string and slide
|-up the neck towards the bridge. Around 14th fret move 
|-onto to B string and continue tremeloing towards the bridge.  Around the
|-19th fret move onto the high E string and continue to tremelo towards the
|-bridge until you reach fret 22 on the high E string. Sit there half a 
  second and tremelo the 22nd fret, then precede as the tab describes below

                          can't tell exactly how this part starts but I think
                          its close enough, so that it really doesn't matter!
