if the fret numbers are closer to each other it means 16th notes, 
usually.

Corrections welcome as long as they're not along the lines of "you're stupid,
that's not how you play the song!" - this is a synth song. Yes, I know that.
This is more or less what I play when I play along to it. You can hear the 
changes pretty easily. It sounds better if you run it through some effects
(mutron bi-phase and some reverb make it sound pretty good. Playing with a 
pick is recommended for the staccato sound that the synths in the song have.
If I get some requests I'll get the guitarist in my band to teach me how
he plays the melody synth parts and post it.
