...rinse and repeat. 
 
NOTES: 
 
I find that the best way to play this song is to fingerpick it. 
It's much easier to sound like the recording that way.  Try to  
sustain the single notes as long as possible, while being very  
staccato with the chords. Listen to the song to get a feel for  
what I mean. 
 
I'll add the second guitar part and the solo as soon as i figure  
them out (I'm about half done). Until then, enjoy.
