He does some incomprehensible stuff that sounds like a bunch of bass growling in 
this first measure. If you know what it is, Im up for suggestions.

G = grace note (extremely quick note)
The hyphen thing didnt work when the notes got into the double-digited numbers or 
where there were triplets. Sorry bout dat.
I went ahead and did all the fills for some weird reason, so youre welcome I guess.
