notes:

1.  the octave bass picking varies a bit and is difficult to make
    out at times, so don't take the above too rigidly. the
    different versions in the two bars of "B" are alternatives.
2.  in section "B", the 3's are quick slides up from the 2nd fret,
    and the 2's that follow each 3 are slid down to, not plucked.
3.  as with most of the pink moon album, the top two strings are
    pretty quiet. In "C", they're not even always played.
4.  the open top string in "D" occurs when the bar is repeated.
5.  the bracketed notes in "C" are somewhat arbitrary notes
    produced during left hand moves.
6.  the notes on the middle E string (end of "A") are quiet.

notes:

1. the second bar has been expanded to double width to fit in the
   shorter notes.
2. on the first beat of bars 2 and 3 you can hear the left hand
   hammering back on to the second fret (002020), although these
   notes are not plucked.

section "C" is different in the intro too:
