Anyone who attempts this one, I would really appreciate your feedback
because I'm tabbing it quickly and I may well have made some mistakes.
I CRDed the whole song because the chords change from verse to verse.
There are of course other little twiddly bits than the 2 fills I've
tabbed, but I'm sure you'll get the picture...
I'm not even going to attempt to tab Ry Cooder's slide guitar for
this- are there any tab conventions for slide?
