Acutally, I just noticed the intros slightly wrong. I'm afraid I can't work out how to do the tab, so I'm going to have to try and describe it.
On the A string, where it goes 0 2 3, you should miss out the 2, but then when you're going back down do what you've written by 3 2 on A and then down to the 3 on the E string. I hope that makes sense and listening to the sounds I'm pretty sure that's right.
Just a niggly point I know :) Thanks for the indication of the down beats though - most useful thing since sliced bread! XD
