Notes: To save space, I've not tabbed out any harmonies.  They're
       pretty easy to figure once you have one guitar line anyway.


Tunning: A E A D F# B


Intro: Not sure about this but the baseline follows a similar
       descending pattern.  The guitar may do a descending run but
       if it does, I can't hear it.
