* Backwards guitar intro. Hold chord & fade it in with your guitar's volume control (or a volume pedal).
  Also keep holding the opening 'Fm' chord when adding the chord embellishments (hammer ons and pull offs).

  

  [Beginners Notes]

  [1] If you're new to guitar/tab then please don't make the mistake of thinking that the three guitar parts
  are lined up accurately in relation to one another, my tablature is only done by hand using 'notepad'. 
  
  [2] Listen to the tune very carefully (and play along with it too) to get your timimg and phrasing correct.

  [3] Once you've got all the parts down try mixing them up and adding your own ideas too. 

  [4] If you found this transcription helpful, I'd appreciate it if you'd rate it for me ...thanks in advance!
