I worked out the fast part now, and it wasn't as difficult as I thought
it would be. Its not that its super fast or anything, its just because
there's so many notes in a row, it gets sort of mind numbing. For clarity,
I've really spaced it apart more than usual. My advice for learning it would
be to study and memorize it, and then try to play along with the song.
For the most part, all of it follows the C major scale played at the 12 position
and dont forget to use one finger per fret.
