Standard tuning

For this song, there are really only 3 sections you need. For brevity I'll
write the sections, and then list the order at the bottom. Each section is
8 beats. It'll be easiest to read if you listen to the song while playing
(Live From the Basement version)*. 


Part "A"

   1   2   3   4  

G|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|   x 2

E|-------3---------------3---------|


G|---------------------------------|

E|-3-5---0-3---5---3-5---0-3---5---|  time played ONLY)

A|-------5---------------5----------|
E|----------------------------------|


G|---------------------------------|
D|-1-3-----1---3---1-3-----1---3---|
A|-------3---------------3---------|
E|---------------------------------|


G|---------------------------------|
D|-0-2-----0---2---0-2-----0---2---|   x 2
A|-------2---------------2---------|
E|---------------------------------|



Part "C"

G|-------10-------10-------10-------10-|
D|-10-12----10-12----10-12----10-12----|
A|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|


G|-------12-------12-------12--------12--|   
D|-10-12----10-12----10-12----10-12------|   
A|----------------------------------[12]-|   A[12] played 2ND time ONLY
E|---------------------------------------|


G|-------------------------------------|
D|-10-12----10-12----10-12----10-12----|
A|-------12-------12-------12-------12-|
E|-------------------------------------|


G|-------------------------------------|
D|-10-12----10-12----10-12----10-12----|
A|-------10-------10-------10-------10-|
E|-------------------------------------|


G|-------[10]----------------------------|   G[10] played 1ST time ONLY
D|-10-12------10-12----10-12----10-12----|
A|--------12--------12-------12-------12-|
E|---------------------------------------|




So the song goes:

A x 4 times (The THIRD time only, do not play the last line)
B x 1 time  
C x 2 times 

A x 1 time
C x 2 times 
B x 3 times (The LAST time repeats the last line about 4.5 times, all
             slightly varied from usual, but normal works)



*I would like to note, that this is somewhat of a generalization. The last
note in the staff may sometimes not be played, repeat the note before it,
go up two frets, or slide down.

I'm sorry if this seemed confusing, I tried to do it in a concise way that made sense.

Leave me a comment if you think of a more clear way to write it or find any mistakes.

Works well, format was clear. It's a lot of fun to play out.
