I really wanted to learn this part of the song because it sounds really cool in the recording, but
it was nowhere online in tab form. I went on youtube to see if anyone videotaped their fingers and i
found this video of xtc80bs doing almost this whole song:

It was pretty much the only thing on this song that i could find, so i pieced this tab together from
the video and the real recording and the fact that this part of the song takes place mostly on the
minor pentatonic scale.


Here is the actual recording for reference:

And here is my tab! It may have some flaws, but it's better than nothing:
