Tuning: Standard

I dunno what the other guys were posting and I've never posted anything but I 
figured this out playing along with the CD and it sounds a whole lot closer than 
anything I've seen posted yet. 

This part is really the Electric guitar if you are listening to the CD version 
but I play everything on an acoustic so if you're playing electric then you can 
probably toy with the notes a little more.

The "lead" notes are somewhat held and abruptly cut (forgive my lack of a better 
way of putting it). Listen to the CD to get the rythym right. You can really play 
this progression anywhere on the guitar (noting the difference in intervals if 
you move from the top two strings), however I think it sounds best either played 
like this or starting with the same progression on the 13th fret and moving down 
a half step each time you repeat.
