This is exactly the way Brent showed me how to play it.
There are a few sections to the song which I have tabbed
individually rather than the whole song.
he sequence is obvious when you listen to the song.

Intro
Play loosely, letting the open strings ring

Brent improvised the second, end solo in one take. He told me not even
he could tab it accurately! So you'll have to work it out yourselves...
