Private Investigations

First, a few precisions: this is an attempt of a transcription of the
studio version of P.I. Not everything of what he does is here (far
from that), but it sounds nice when you play this along with the
record, or with a bunch a musician friends.
Besides, I'm completely deaf when it comes to figure out chords (even worse
than solos!), and I know that he often starts these little "phrases"
by strumming a 3 or 4 notes chord, and then picks notes over it. So if
such "phrase beginnings" don't seem to match for you hear, and you
happen to find better ways to do them, please let me know!
Add on (22 Feb. 93): The corrections I've added are precisely trying to
improve those "starts".
As usual, any adds, corrections, comments, are welcome.
No notations tricks: a "" means the note following should have no
attack (i.e. slide it, hammer it, pull it, whatever!).
