Chords Used In Order of Appearence
(Low to High):

Note: There is a non-standard chord used that I will call "C2".
      Please refer to chord diagram for fingering.
      Also, I am aware that not all chords have been given the proper names.
      This has been done for convenience, mainly mine.

Guitar 1 plays intro once, then is accompanied a second time by
Guitar 2 playing this picking part:
