-----13--11-10--11---------------------------------------------------|

---------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------|
--9~~---11~~--9~-----8~~---------------------------------------------|

There are a few mistakes but I could work them out pretty easily. Near perfect. Good job. 4 stars.
