This is only the start part at this stage but it is
surely the hardest part.
1/2 step down
Bass is 1/2 step down, but also dropped D (actually Db)

You will work out the pattern of the song.
First it plays 1a then 1b, then the next it plays
1a a couple of times before going to 1b.
The chord that is strummed on each beat later in is the
following:
e-9--
B-10-
[G-11-]  
[D-12-]  
[A----]  
[E----]  
That's about all I have at the moment. Most of it is correct.
Maybe a couple of notes are wrong in that section that changes
to the barred twelvth fret.
Send me any comments please. I like to hear from people who
actually use these tabs.
