Tempo markers - = BPM(8/16=s8/s16), where s8 = swing 8ths, s16 = swing 16ths Gtr one is two distorted guitars, panned left and right, arranged for one guitar. It's still totally accurate, because one guitar merely plays chords while the other plays fills (harmonics etc) so you don't miss out on anything. The harmonic fills in the verse are played in a very percussive manner, and get progressively more so throughout the song. I've tried to notate it, but listen to the record to get the right feel. Lastly, the harmonic lick in measures 38 and 39, is basically just Ty percussively attacking the strings while sliding up and down the neck to find the harmonic nodes. Have fun!
