NOT COMPLETE - Check back for an update.

Tabbed by Larry Jones

This tab was compiled from watching two different live videos from the 2011
SSTB Neverender tour.  Most of this tab, including the entire note-for-note
finger picked intro, was taken from the Dallas, TX show.  The bridge was
pulled from the Kansas City, MO show.  From watching other videos, this
song seems to played slightly differently every time they play it.  Claudio
also seems to mess this one up quite a bit.

Since this seems to be such a varied song, don't be afraid to
experiment with some of these parts. You certainly do not have to play it
note for note as I have transcribed it.

Feel free to view my Youtube cover below if you need help playing it.

Perfect man. I saw them at their first show in Kansas City that tour, and hearing this blew my mind.
