(MAIN JAM)
These are the basic notes, but feel free to add an octave on the d string to give it a
sound like Barber often does.

---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|

From this point you can either noodle around on the aminor scale or try something like
just make sure and tremolo pick the notes starting on the 18, this is the buildup that
into the "suspended in the air" part of the song.

Throw some variation in, and when he is not playing the above he messes around here:
