Guthries (AMAZING) solo... The fast parts are WAY to hard to tab for me, sorry for not having 
it complete :( If anyone wants to complete AND correct this solo (Im SURE not everything I have 
is correct), you will def. get credits in here. Most of what I have is correct, so it should give 
you a great head start!

This part is hard to hear but the final notes, so I'm not sure of the roots on all of em.

Break

I honestly have no idea how they get the heavier effect, Im guessing (and playing) with an octave 
down pedal mixed in with the original signal. Repeat quite a few times.

Repeat second bar as needed, Im very curious with this bar, sometimes I want to play
the chords with the root on the sixth string, not sure if its the bass or the guitar,
you decide, but right now I'm playing with the octavizer still on...I need live videos of this :(
Thanks to rgsw97 for pointing out that they are hammers, not power chord slides lol
