* Change to open-string on Beat-2+
Left-hand ring-finger holds 2nd-string Fret-3 throughout

Richard plays the part with a flat-pick in recent live performances
however the original recording features two finger-picking patterns.
Chord forms are held allowing notes to ring.
From BRIDGE onwards patterns are embellished with hammers and pulls.
