PERFORMANCE NOTES:

The main rhythm figure ends abruptly just before the switch
to the harmony vocals section. Listen to the recording to hear
exactly where you should stop.

In the tab for the lead guitar during the harmony section,
the bottom notes are optional. You can play them to add a fuller
sound to the guitar part. Listen to the recording to hear where
these bottom notes would sound best added in.
