The Allman Brothers Band - Statesboro Blues tab

I tabbed the first part of this in a previous tab but didn't have time to finish, 
now I'm doing the rest.

Tuning:  Open-E (E, B, G#, E, B, E)
This is the slide part only, the rhythm guitar is just a twelve-bar blues in D

I'm not great at writing the timing in the tab, you'll have to listen to figure 
out all the timings.
Great song by one of the greatest bands of all time.  Enjoy!
