TAB Key
-------
 
	h  - hammer on
	p  - pulloff
	/  - slide up
	U  - upstroke
	D  - downstroke
	() - incidental note
	X  - mute with palm of picking hand
	[xT] - play indicated phrase 'T' times
        rake - exagerate the strumming of the chord
	      (but not enough for it to be an arpeggio)

Tuning Notes
-------------

The tuning was extracted using the Intro figure, and confirmed in
other parts of the song.

Starting with the guitar in standard tuning:

			E A D G B E (low to high)

and altering the tuning as follows .....

Listening to the Intro. The 2 highest notes, which ring throughout,
sound as open strings. These notes are 'B' and 'D', and gives us:

			? ? ? ? B D

The first 2 (lowest) notes of the common picked pattern are doubled
G notes. Tuning the A-string down to G would make this possible to
play, giving:

			? G ? ? B D

The other G can be played on the E-string-3rd fret, although at the
moment its tuning isn't clear.

The descending run in bar 4, contains open strings. An open D-string
can be heard. The highest note picked is an 'A' - this also sounds as
an open note, implying the standard G-string needs to be tuned to an
open A, giving:
			      *
			? G D A B D

* Make sure you were originally tuned to standard 'E' (as found on a
guitar tuner) or lower, before attempting this. Otherwise the G-string
is put under stress and can break.

The only unknown string is the bottom E-string, which is left tuned
to E - allowing the doubled G note to be played on the 3rd fret.

In verse 1 bar 8, there is an ascending pattern which uses the lowest
3 strings in open positions. An open low E can be heard, confirming
the tuning to be:

			E G D A B D (from low to high)

Playing Notes
-------------

The Intro and Verses 1 and 2 are in 4/4 time. The choruses, verse 3
and guitar solos are in 2/4 time. Thanks to Mandy for the thoughts

Verses 1 and 2 are based on the picking pattern used in the Intro.
Let all notes ring, particularly those on the D and B strings. Verse
3 uses the same shape as a chorus.

In the chorus' spend time getting the feel of 2/4 time. Also, make
sure the guitar is in tune - a few D's played in unison can sound
unforgiving if it isn't up to scratch. The chorus' sound 'jangley',
its possible that they were either doubletracked, played with a
chorus effect or that a 12-string guitar was used. Chorus 2 has a
mandolin mixed in with the guitar, which in turn gives it a brighter
sound.

Both solos are similar and have a Spanish/flamenco feel. The solos
contain some fast note flurries and wide interval steps, requiring
some fretboard fluency. The rhythm tracks behind both solos use the
same shape as a chorus, but the note choices are more uniform.
