For the intro: I tried to play the long note as a slide note. I have to say
that it sounds much better.

Tab notation followed:-----------------
10^12   : slide from 10th to 12th fret
10^(12) : bending (one tone) on 10th fret
(12)^10 : descending bend note on 10th fret
10vv    : vibrato note
10>12   : hammer on
12<10   : pull off
