v) WINDSWEPT THUMB This is played on a keyboard (I don't think the guitar plays in this bit) though it sounds fine on a guitar if you're careful to let the notes ring out fully.

Okay, this has already been done by Dan Newcombe (it's at Nevada), but to me it sounds a little different, so I've included my own version. The effects used make it really difficult to hear - I guess everyone hears it differently! But anyway... song, but replaces some of the fiddly bits with equivalent chords and strums them a few times during the verses...? Towards the end, there is a bit of a solo based around these notes. And that's it!
