Try to flange the notes so tht they "croak" If possible
pinch harmonics can be used to emphasise these notes
Where possible I have shown the notes that result form these sounds
without the special techniques needed

In this section it is hard to discerne notes. 
If you cannot follow the tab (and its not easy) then try
to improvise! In addition to this, the tab below is mainly 
an attempt to continue the song, using snipets of 
information I could hear.
