Repeat the Verse

Solo

Low part of solo (play twice) then middle once.
-3----3----3----3--|| -3----5----5----5---|
-0----3----2----1--|| -0----3----2----1---|
-0----0----0----0--|| -0----0----0----0---|
-2----2----2----2--|| -2----2----2----2---|
-------------------|| --------------------|
-------------------|| --------------------|

Middle part 2 of solo (play once) then play the
next High part (with the 12's) 4 times using
different strumming patterns each time.

?-3----5----7----8--  -12---12---12---12--|
?-0----3----3----3--  --0----0----0----0--|
?-0----0----0----0--  --0----0----0----0--|
?-2----2----2----2--  --9---12---11---10--|
?-------------------  --------------------|
?-------------------  --------------------|

The cool final strum pattern is
d udu d udu d udu d d d
Gradually slow it, then strum the final chord
once and go into the fingerpicking part with the
same chords. I'm not positive on the picking
pattern.

Fingerpicking part (do 2 reps for each chord,
gradually slow and at the end pluck the highest
and lowest strings together.
