Bela Fleck And The Flecktones - New South Africa tab

Hey folks, it's been a long while since I've submitted a tab, but I've decided to tackle
this one... mostly by ear, so bear with me if there's some hiccups, most of it is a
reinterpretation of the Live Art recording of this track, complete with solo. For all 
those guitar-playing Bela freaks out there, this one's for you!

This is the intro and the main melody. The only difference being that in the intro, at
the end of each of the first 3 melodic phrases, hold the note. There ya go, that's two
parts of the song.

(Note, in the last time you run through this melody at the end, you add one bar of rest
after the 3rd phrase only, then the last phrase is played as the ending of the song.)

This is the bridge, where it suddenly switches over to a minor key tonality and gets
really funky.

Alright, before it gets kind of tricky with the solo, this is the buildup part right
before the final recapitulation of the melody.
