Miscellaneous info:


Note:   In the transcription of the chorus, the moving parallel thirds

        on the 2nd and 3rd strings are the piano part, presented for

        information and completeness.  I don't mean to suggest that 

        both parts be played by one guitarist (certainly not when it 

        gets to the [35576-]).
