-----------------

This is in drop-d tuning. I'm not totally sure about this since it is hard to
determine which parts are played on guitar and which on bass. The "Verse" does
sound different when it comes up the third time, making me wonder if there are
two base lines in the first two verses: one track only playing the low 
d-string, the second playing the extensional stuff. 

Any comments welcome.
