All that work... and yet you started the melody in the wrong spot, which throws off the entire rest of the piece.

The melody starts on the up-beat of one, not on the down-beat w/ the bass note. It's a 16th-note rhythm... bass on "one," nothing on "ee," pluck strings 3 and 4 on "and," hammer-on strings 3-4 on "a," then bass note on 2.

Go listen to it about 20 times with this in mind... you'll get it right.
