 ^0 <--- those (, ) and ^ mean to strum down
 )0      the chord with your thumb (if you're a thumber),
 (6      pretty much make each string nice and
 )7      defined as you strum it

 % My music theory is off, but I think a big %
   sign means repeat previous measure. If not, well
   that's what it means here.

Chorus 1
----------
G1&G2 (banjo solo in here, yeah, have fun listening to figure
it out. Also, build this up really slowly, but only to about
metzo-forte [kinda loud, but not really], just make sure you
have room to get louder coming up).

* Those two chords at the end of the second measure are
my banjo interpritations, only play the last two times. *

* This section is relatively similar to the part before it,
lots of ringing notes and building up and sound contiunually
piling upon layer and layer of orgasmic sound. Yeah, just keep building it.*

*Again, this section starts off softly and then builds
and builds and builds and builds. Have your violinist
friends on hand, as well as key members of the brass
section for this part.*

-Pretty simple stuff, keep your B and e strings open for added prettiness
