some special notation I used for this piece:

typical 'rockabilly' lick:

--------------------- start the lick by picking the notes on the 2nd
--10-------10---10--- and 3rd strings, bend the 3rd string up to the note
---9b(11)-(11)-(11)r9 in parens. hold the bend this way and pick the 2nd
--------------------- and 3rd strings the required number of times. on the
                      last set, release the 3rd string back to its original
                      position. kinda like a pedal-steel, no?


--3b---0------------- a 'slight' bend, usually pulled off to an open string.
