[NOTE]: UPDATED! 28/02/2014 - I think I've finally got the harmonics in the main section down.
I only ever had (5) and (7) on the A, but in the song the harmonics all seem to give off a
slightly different tone and I think I've finally figured it out, give it a look!
It has been over 5 years since I uploaded this tab (late 2008), and I think it's finally
getting there ;) A few of what I thought were muted notes are likely still harmonics just
either quieter or not played correctly by Justin imo, will fix those when I get some more time.

The change is essentially from
|---------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------|
|----(7)---(5)-----(7)---(5)---(7)------|
|--7-----5-----/10-----5------8-----2/--|

to this

|---------------------------------------|
|----------(7)--------------------------|
|----(7)----------(12)---(5)---(7)------|
|--7-----5-----/10-----5------8-----2/--|

The (7) on the higher D gives a slightly different tone to the (5) on the A despite being
the same note, giving some variance between the two harmonics which is what I was hearing
on the track but couldn't figure out why. The change from (7) to (12) on the A after the /10 just
seems to sound right as well. Small changes but I feel it was pretty major to the overall song
and sounds more correct to me now, hope it's the same for everyone else. Cheers, Snow.
