Note: The original recording contains multiple layers of overdubbed guitars, as many as six near the end when Jim Martin is improvising over the harmonized repeat. However, I've compressed this into two guitars to make it easier to play, while trying to maintain the original sound and feel as much as possible. Enjoy! Victor
