X** - Note:  on each of the echoing/harmonizing vocals  
It varies back and forth between singing right after and  
Almost on top of the preceding word, and there being a short pause  
Before the vocal in parentheses starts.  The ďx‚ÄĚ marks those  
That start right away without a pause.   

Hope this helps - Happy playing and a hearty Stewball to everyone!!!
