                This is from memory, and it doesn't put in all of his little variations,
but it's enough to find the basics. Hope you can make heads/tails of it. h
means harmonic at the indicated fret, H is hammer-on, p is pulloff, > is
slide. All fingerings are left to the imagination unless blatantly bizarre,
in which case they are sort of noted. >RL/OR/OR14-14-14p10p12h---------------2p0(or12h)H2p0H2p0H2p0H2


*    >RR/OR/O-14-14-p-10-12-12->-14-p-7-p-0--9h-----------------------
-(7h)--------------------------------------9h---or something....:)--

* The odd(]) bits: beginning of third line where you pull off from the
left-fretted 000888 to the right-fretted (000)333 then hammer onto the
000111...the (000)333 is fretted by the right thumb from UNDER the neck,
and held while the left pulls off from the 888s (the 000's should be still
ringing from the 000888). From this position, one then hammers the 111 with
the left index from below while strumming upward across the low three
strings with the right thumb to get the 000111. Then pull off with the left
and hammer on with the right index over the neck to get the 222000. The 8th
harmonic (5h-7h-8h) a bit later is what he hits on the Double Planet
version that sounds like a bell. It's the triple octave harmonic, also
found midway between the 2nd and 3rd frets. It takes a bit of looking, for
it's too easy to get the overtones to carry over from the 9th harmonic,
which is way the wrong note. The 2&1/2 fret node is easier to find, but the
8th is closer to what's being played. Great sound effects: I love it]
(Incidentally, I just decided the notation looked a little cramped after
the first line, hence the subsequent breathing spaces]) 

So goes my first attempt at tablature transcription. Hopefully, it's
marginally decipherable. Bass strings on the bottom, treble on the top, if
I remember the conventions....that's how I wrote it, anyway. 
Still Even More Thoughts ('cause I'm so together): This is pretty much how
the song was originally written, but he varies the part directly above the
*** (line 3) a bit, so it sometimes is more like:
