Important Note - The A Part has two different endings. The first ending is numbered "1." and the second is numbered "2." The reason they are different is because in order to repeat the long slide as you come back to the beginning you need to play that 2nd fret note.
The second ending leads you on to the B Part so that note is not needed. You play from the beginning to the repeat sign at the end of the first ending. Then you go back to the first repeat sign and play up to the start of the first ending--but skip over the first ending-- and play the second ending. Then you go directly into the B part--which is played twice.
that sounds confusing, simply think of the measures marked 1. and
as alternate endings. Don't play them both back to back. Another
idea is to listen to the track above and follow along with the
tab. You'll get it!
