Notes: In the live version of this song, the capo is at fret 2 instead of 1. It also features the additional guitar in the instrumental section, and an alternate ending (returns to the opening theme for 2 rounds with the 3 final chords plucked [Guitar 1: x0201x > x0203x > 0xx230; Guitar 2: xx759x > xx97Tx > xxT9T0]). The live version contains some improvised ornaments in guitar #2 right before the closing riff. Usually it's just one or two notes (8 on the B string & 9 on the G string) over the span of the guitar #1 main riff. Watch one of their live performances on Youtube to see what I mean. Thought I'd release this cohesive tab since Erland's part (guitar #2) is nowhere to be found online. The tab above should be faithful to the 3-3-2 rhythm incase timing is an issue. Hope this helps everyone out who loves this song as much as I do.
