Ok, first a bunch of disclaimers.
I haven't actually listened to this played for quite a while, so
this whole thing was written from memory about half a year ago. Luckily,
this is quite a memorable tune, so I think that it's a fair imitation of
the original. Whether or not, it still sounds pretty cool.
Other stuff: I'm no music major, and so I have no idea what key
this is really in (Am?). Also, I don't have a very good grasp of timing,
so don't take my measure marks too seriously.


This is one of my absolute favorite pieces in guitar, especially
since I arranged it myself :) . One interesting thing to note is the use
of pedalling - this is where the high E string is played every other note.
This adds a cool twist to an otherwise simple melody, and yet adds very
little difficulty to the playing. I suggest you use it everywhere.
A playing note: if your guitar (an acoustic, preferably) is any
good, try not to mute (and, of course, not to hit) any of the strings that
you are not playing on. You get this really cool reverb effect,
especially in the intro. (Well, it works on my guitar at least.) I also
suggest you fingerpick this song; it's really hard to get that pick back
and forth between the 1st and 4th strings.

Now then, here it is.

^^^^ starting here

I sometimes like to tap these entire three measures (without picking
anything but the first note). Also, you can pick the melody notes and
pull-off to the pedal note. Or, if you are using a pick and you're really
good with it, you can pick every single note. I can't.

That's the intro. Somewhere else in the song, this little thing comes up:

Please notify me of anything wrong or typoed. If anyone has a better
version, I'd be glad to see it. I hope everyone enjoys playing this as
much as I do...
