Notes: It's in standard tuning, which makes me wonder if it's Jerry

playing guitar on this one. Although this song isn't driven

by the guitar, it was difficult to figure out. I'm willing

to bet this is about 95% accurate. Sadly, I don't think we'll

ever know for sure.

* Gtr.1 : The time gap between playing these

two identical notes is very short

to achieve a subtle delay effect.
