I'm not so sure what's going on at the end of this line, Frank's kinda muffled in the 
when playing that low on the neck.

***************************

NOTE: The next few bars (especially this first run) are tough to make out due to the 
at which Frank plays and the fact that he's not exactly clean when picking some of the 
 I did my best, and comments and corrections are always welcome.
