Miscellaneous info:

Note:   In the transcription of the chorus, the moving parallel thirds
        on the 2nd and 3rd strings are the piano part, presented for
        information and completeness.  I don't mean to suggest that
        both parts be played by one guitarist (certainly not when it
        gets to the [35576-]).
