It would be best to not follow the leads note for note,
because I'm probably wrong about the order in which they're
played. Make your own revisions. Also, listen to the song
to get the order of everything correct, and to know when to
repeat things. I'm sorry that I don't know the ending,
but if somebody would send it to me, I would be very grateful.

Sorry no video of the actual playing because this was an audio recording but hope it givs you the right idea. This is played with the corrected chords and the video actually sounds terrible in Mono. If you want to hear the much better Stereo version go here and listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfpncH5jxTs&fmt=18
