Before you start, keep this in mind.  Form chords at the intro part so 
your fingers arent going all over the place.  Let the notes ring out 
for as long as possible.

Intro - Omar takes his pick and taps it above the neck pickup and does 
a lot of pick scrapes.  He also uses a porcelain slide to do bird calls.  
Use lots of delay.
               Harm.

Then the piano, played by the other guitarist, comes in with the B minor, 
G, D, and G chords.

Intro .20 seconds.  The second guitarist goes to his guitar and plays this.  
Omar plays the exact same thing except he slides the last notes down to nothing 
and adds pick     scrapes.  He uses a slide as well.  With chorus and delay.
