=============================================================
Kevin Cherry's note on synthesizer arrangement:

Starts out on a synth, but using two guitars: 
 
Guitar 1: 
 
Finger  
e  x 
B  x 
G 10 
D 10 
A   8  
E  x 
 
Pick quickly A-A-D-D-G-G-D-D-A-A-D-D-G-G-D-D (all sixteenth notes) over and
over  
(Technically, this is until the end of the song, when the violin comes in.)

 
Guitar 2: 
 
Finger: 
e  13 
B 13 
G 10 
D  x 
A  x 
E  x 
 
Pick quickly G-G-B-B-e (The G and B strings are played as sixteenth, the e
is picked as an eighth)
