And you are done :)  I hope you like the Xylonphone tabs.  
I only included them when there was no guitar playing, so 
this tab is easy to play with one person and doesn't get 
boring for the audience.  A big thanks to Jowell since he
did a good tab of the guitar part first, so the guitar 
part is mostly borrowed from him, the rest is all me
though.  Remember that the Xylophone part is also tabbed
with a capo, so it's actually the given fret +5 if you were 
to play it without a capo.

It's very important to note that this tab is not for the version on the "Ocean Eyes" Album. The next tab includes the extra guitar part.

from the fourth part of the intro it shows this:

e|---------------------------------------|
B|----------0-----------------3---0------|
G|------0-2---2-0-----------0---2---0----|
D|----2-----------2-------2--------------|
A|----------------------3----------------|
E|--0------------------------------------|
but really is :
e|--------2------------------------------|
B|------0--0---3-------------3-----------|
G|----0------4-------------0----------2--|
D|--2--------------------2--------0-4----|
A|---------------------3-----------------|
E|------------------------------3--------|

but otherwise the rest of the tab is spot on!
