Notes:
* There are several versions of this tab available already, but I'm yet
to see one that mimics the way Gilmour actually plays. The notes may
be technically accurate in the other versions, but I personally find it
easier to play it this way.  (I hope this doesn't sound like I'm knocking the other 
- they're very good!)

* I am by no means a good guitarist! There may well be a few mistakes
in this tab, and I apologise if I do not know the technical names for
some of the musical stuff!!!

* Contains no indications of timing - you will have to listen to the song
to try to work it out I'm afraid!

* It sounds like Gilmour bends up from the 8th fret to 12th at this
point, but I can't do that, so I move up to the 10th fret to bend up
instead.

Music fades out at this point and is hard to make out...


Key:
----
b = bend up
r = release bend
h = hammer on
p = pull off
(NN) before a bend = pre-bend from this fret.
(NN) after a bend = play the note still bent rather than move to actual fret.
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
