Tuning: Standard EADGBe, no capo

This is a great song off a wonderful album, and it has some tricky progressions 
here and there. However, I think this is pretty much spot-on. Comments and 
corrections are welcome.

Note: In the second and third instrumentals, I have notated the rhythm of some of 
the chords using slashes and bar lines- the chords should be on the first, third 
and fourth beats of those bars.
