It's been a long time I was lookin' for this song's TAB, but I didn't found it.
So, I decided to figure it out by ear. This TAB isn't 100% accurate, I think
it's 90%, and I think it's enough to play. It's a cool song, and it's easy to
play. That's the way I play it!! Listen to the record to get the rythmn, and
good job! This is my first try, I hope you enjoy!!!!

Legend:
h = hammer on
p = pull off
~ = vibrato
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
fb= full bend 'till (x)
r = release bend
()= notes between are natural harmonics

NOTE: It's hard to listen those parts, but it's something like that, just
harmonizing notes in intervals of diatonic sixties, according with D major
scale. It's used a lot in blues and country themes. I hope you enjoy!
