| x x x x x x x x | x x x x x x x x | *. x, in this case, represents the
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +    unconventional act of tapping on
                                        the pickup for percussive effect.
                                        In this instance, I believe it is
                                        done on the neck/rhythm pickup.
