Beginning chords are in the background while synths are in the foreground.
The little muted notes section is a timing thing, listen to the tune carefully.
The beginning 3 guitar notes on the STUDIO recording are NOT natural harmonics,
but are as noted. This differs from other recorded and live versions.
