End with variations of the intro.
This song is not difficult once you listen to it to figure out the timing. Play it along with it.
Also listen to the John Byrd EP for some sweet variations especially on the intro/outro. can figure them out it's a fun song.
Let me know what you think. This is the first tab I ever made. -Williston Dye
