Written by Rick Nielson?

Notation:
s - sixteenth note
e - eighth note
q - quarter note
h - half note
w - whole note
{~3~} - the only way I can think of notating a triplet
. - play note for one and a half times the value before it (just like a dot in 
     standard notation)
^ - ties two note lengths together
NOTE LENGTHS IN CAPITAL LETTERS MEAN REST FOR THAT VALUE OF TIME!
/ - slide up
\ - slide down
h - hammer-on
p - pull-off

(itty-bitty 2-beat drum fill)
