I will have to make the effect changes, and ensure I play that opening part enough times, and re-record it.
You had to get pedantic on me :P I think of it as 3 notes since it forms a B-major, but you're right, it is 4 played notes.
I think we're not counting the same... As you say, it should be *played* for 5 measures, but I think of it as being *repeated* for 4 measures, and then played again on the next measure as the start of that musical "phrase" that is re-used in the song. (That's terribly non-musical terminology, I know.) You repeated for 3 measures, and then started that "phrase", meaning you played it for a total 4 measures, or 8x. Anyway, you know what I mean!
The only reason I noticed is because I just learned to play this song the other day! Otherwise I probably wouldn't have noticed at all...
I look forward to hearing the next revision.
By the way, I actually play this on a 6-string. The way I get the low notes is I have my expression pedal set up to drop my pitch by 5 half-steps. So everything that would be played on the low B I play on the low E with the pedal rocked back. With the heavy delay this actually sounds okay. It just doesn't work for the final B5 chord.
