nice one, you just missed the riff marr plays when isaac signs "it obviously was beautifully..." - i think it goes like this:

Thanks man. Yep, this song has some quiet parts. I thought at first is was just Marr and Isaac, so it was strange enough trying to figure out if anything was synth, slide, or guitar. THEN I found out Tom's playing lap steel over this (saw it in the PepsiSMASH video) and now it all makes sense.

Thanks for that addition, Marr's riff. I wouldn't have caught that. :)
