  This was an absolute nightmare to transcribe to computer... Its real hard
to get the correct feeling accross, so Its best to listen to the recording.
The arpeggios that the intro finishes with are suspect... they are my approx-
imations, but they have the right feel. The part labelled fast on the TAB
(start of line 2) is probably played differently than this, but the notes
are right (This was the first time I played slide learning this intro, and this
seemed easier then.) You have to LISTEN to the recording to get the timing and
volume of the notes right, although I've tried to indicate that. Wear the slide
on your little finger, becuase at one point he plays normal notes with the
rest of his fingers.
On a lighter note (Ha! Note. Geddit?) its a great intro, and sounds *groovy*..
	Cheers Bigears....  Mikey
