                                          | ph - pinched harmonic |
Arranged by Watchtower                    |_______________________|

Tuning: Standard

This was hard. If anyone can point out any mistakes I would appreciate it.
There are a few harp effects and acoustic tracks that are similar to what Ron
plays on electric guitar, so I didn't bother to include them.
