d/u = down/up strum
  X = muted hit
=== = sustained note
  \ = slide
5> = harmonic

1 beat passing chord:
In order to play this rhythm properly consider a simpler
pattern of a chord on the first two beats of the bar.
Maintain the down and up strum movement for each beat.
Then syncopate each change by playing on the up-strum.

h = hammer-on
p = pull-off

Each figure is played three times finishing with a flourish.
The three C-figures take twenty-one 16ths as expected, however
the D-figures take only twenty... but who's counting?
TAB shows approximately where the beats fall in the full lick.
* 7th-fret harmonic sounds because of tight fingering position
