Measures 13-21 are meant to imitate birds 
singing, so try to follow along with an 
aviary in mind. Feel free to improvise.

This section represents flowing fountains, 
so maintain a smooth legato feel. Play the 
harmony with another instrument or just the 
higher pitch line if playing on one guitar.

I have charted this virtuoso section (which 
is supposed to represent lightening and rain) 
to incorporate two-hand tapping because of the 
speed with which it must be played. 
But it doesn't have to be. Even though it 
is fast, it has a distinct triplet feel 
so don't lose count while you are playing.
(notes are 16th's)
