                (Intro)
I really like the piano piece in this song, and just wasn't happy playing Fmaj7 and
(the main 2 chords in the song) on their own. I wanted to learn it note-for-note but
find it anywhere.
I can't find the sheet music for free (I'm not paying for only one song, and this song
repeats for a long time... and I don't play the piano), but I found a preview so I
wrote what I could find, and attempted the rest.
It's not as easy as it would be on the piano because it's obviously not written for the
but I took the separate treble and bass clef and mixed them together on this.
I had to tune it differently. For example, the low E had to go down to get the bass note
the C chord to sound right. I tuned the B string up just to try make it more convenient.
I tried to keep the tuning as close to standard as possible, but I play almost
in alternate tunings so I wasn't afraid to change around, hopefully you won't be either...

I added this just in case anyone has a second guitarist with them or even a loop pedal
I'd say this would make it sound great together. This would simply layer over the main
being played in the song. I wrote it as harmonics to make it stand out from the other part.
(I tried to add it as regular notes on top of what is above but the notes really need to
be an octave higher to be properly distinguished, and to avoid throwing off the flow of
song)

And, for the last part, it cannot be played properly because the notes are too high and
off the fretboard. It wouldn't be very convenient to try moving some harmonics up to
them either so I'll just post a version that has the melody an octave lower.

(Just a note that here, the bass notes should alternate, like in the previous section,
an open note followed by the 7th fret, both on the 6th string, but it's not really
I tried tuning the 5th string down to a G to make up for it, but that made other parts 
the song awkward... We'll just have to keep playing the open note, it doesn't sound too 
though...)
