Legend:
w,h,q,e,s = whole,half,quarter,eighth,sixteenth
H,Q,E = dotted half, quarter, eighth
+ = tie
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
r = rest
^ = strum
h = hammer
p = pulloff
. = staccato
x = mute or percussive
() = optional note
Performance notes: I found the G#7 in the bridge pretty rough
initially; slide the C#min7 up to the 8th fret, add the pinky at
the 11th on the 3rd, then oblique the index finger to the 9th on
the 5th. Cleans up fairly quickly.
