         ]        ]        ]        ]   ]       Note:  The original recording contains multiple layers of overdubbed
guitars, as many as six near the end when Jim Martin is improvising over the
harmonized repeat. However, I've compressed this into two guitars to make it
easier to play, while trying to maintain the original sound and feel as much
as possible. Enjoy!
