(*) the number of times you stroke the 11th fret is unknown, but you will
be rapidly stroking it for exactly 2 seconds (beginning at bend)

E[------------------------]

then repeat the riff above 5X and then

e[-11--12------]
B[---------12--]
G[-------------]
D[-------------]
A[-------------]
E[-------------]

Note that the Final chorus sounds a lot like the normal chorus, except Dan plucks once 
each note change and lets it ring.

Please note that I am very precise on the timing, watch the notch(-)count
between notes.
