This file is all my own work.

archive, where he says "these are not the chords": the ones that follow are
closer.
These chords come after the opening is played twice.

Still relative to the capo on the 4th fret:

|---------|X|------------------------5-----------------|
|---------|X|------5----1----3------5--------1----3----|
|---------|0|------5----0----0----0 or 5-----0----0----|
|---------|0|------3-----------------3-----------------|
|---------|X|-----------------0--------------0---------|
|---------|3|------5----------3------5------(0)---3----|

(|| indicates the longer hold, and parenthesis mean you can add this note
for effect)

That's it. Following this is the tab for the rest of the song:

Here we go, y'all.

All fingerings are relative to the capo.

Okay, now for the final notes:
1.) To make this song sound right, play those 1st 2 measures this way:
    Just pluck the first two notes (I actually prefer to play this
    part with only my thumb and index finger) but MUTE the bass note
    as you slide down. You do not want this note sounding. No need
    to get drastic about it, just kill the tone JUST before sliding.

2.) Play all of the hammer-on parts FAST. This is the best way to play
    any fill of this sort. If you feel you are playing this TOO fast,
    make sure to add a compensory silence following the fill. Trust
    me, it will sound ok. The latter silence balances the feel.

3.) I would not suggest fingering the last measure as a barre chord. It's
    just too damned hard, and not neccessary at all. And don't use your
    thumb. Try index finger - bass then DOWN middle finger on the
    high 2 string.

4.) While I'm on the topic of fingering, I must point out: when I first
    played this song, I couldn't get it through my head how to finger
    the first two measures. So, let's notmake the same mistake, eh?
    Index finger - bass note, ring finger - treble. Do not attempt
    to pull off these notes rather than slide. It sounds horrid.

5.) Still wanna get those chords right. E-mail me with help.

6.) About the * part above: to make it sound right, make sure you start
the slide [string 2: |----3/5\3---| ] with your FIRST (index) finger.
Much easier, and it cuts down the akwardness of the thing.

Ok, I'm done.
Have fun, yeee HAW!

Rick
