Notices:
1. Timing is everything on this song because it's Reggae, pretty much. Everything's
on the up beat. The intro and the outro are the big timing issues. Whatever...
listen to the song and look at the tab, you'll get it.

2. There are two ways to play the main rhythm part:

I. 1 + + + 2 + + + 3 + + + 4 + + +   1 + + + 2 + + + 3 + + + 4 + + +
G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|.--------------------------------|--------------------------------.|
A|.----------------5---5-----------|-----------------7---7----------.|
E|-4h5-5-5-4h5-5-5---------5~------|-4h5-5-5-4h5-5-5---------5~------|
                           ^Let it ring...                   ^

II.1 + + + 2 + + + 3 + + + 4 + + +   1 + + + 2 + + + 3 + + + 4 + + +
G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|.--------------------------------|--------------------------------.|
A|.----------------5---5-----------|-----------------7---7----------.|
E|-4h5-5-5-4h5-5-5---------5---5-5-|-4h5-5-5-4h5-5-5---------5---5-5-|
                               ^Start the rhythm early...        ^

If you understand that, great, you probably all ready knew that you can do it.

3. I don't speak Spanish... very well.

4. If there are any corrections, it would be the timing displayed or the slide down
from the 15. I'm pretty D*MN sure I got them both but... any masters want to fix
it, by all means, do. It'll make me happy.

I played this again the other day, and found out something. It's easier to play the high 
part with the slide like this:
   1  +  +  +  2  +  +  +  3 + + + 4 + + +   1  +  +  +  2  +  +  +  3 + + + 4 + + +
G|-----------------------------------------|------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------|------------------------------------------|
A|-11h12-12-12-12-12-12-12---------12~-----|-11h12-12-12-12-12-12-12------------------|
E|-------------------------10--10----------|-------------------------12--12--15\5-----|

The timing looks all f'd up 'cause the 12's. But, pretty much, it's easier to play on 
12th fret on the A string, 'cause the slide is right there. Yeaup. Cool...
