INTRO:

A   B   Abm   C#m   A   B   E


At the conclusion of the intro but before the first verse, this fourish is played in
pinches, but consult the tape or CD for the proper rhythm. The harmonic which ends the 
requires exact placement of your finger over the 12th (octave) fret and a very
touch (do not press the string down to the fretboard, just lightly touch it). Parts of 
flourish are used throughout the song, so keep your ears open.
