NB:
*[b^c] indicates a deliberately awkward-sounding 
string bend, from a 'B' note to almost a 'C' note 
(done by fingering the 7th fret of the high E 
string, and bending it up almost a complete semi-tone).

**The short musical interlude, (the 'Bach Bit'!), 
indicated by [**] is as follows:

'Bach Bit' (Tab):

E----------------------------------
B----------------------------------
G----5--3--5---3--1--0-------------
D-----------------------3--2--3----
A----------------------------------
E----------------------------------


***'nc' indicates no chord is to be played.
