Part II

(This is what is written for the music that I have.  I noticed in playing
around with it that playing straight off the Db and Eb also sounds good.)

This next section is strumming around  an  A-minor at the first position and
either lifting the first finger off to form Asus2 (002200) or adding the 4th
finger on the second string third  fret  to  form Asus4 (002230).  These are
all eighth notes with no rests, but  the  chord change comes on the 4th note
of each measure (the 'and' of the second beat) like:

Strum: Asus2 Am        Asus4 Am        Asus2 Am        Asus4 Am
       |     |

INTRO:
3/4 time rubato, that is, played slowly 'with feeling'.  Actually,
everyone wants to play it just like Mason does on the record...

* - arpeggio (The sheet music would denote this as three notes together
    with a squiggly line.  You are supposed to know that the notes are
    not played together.)

** - triplet (fill in the space that two notes usually take up with
     three evenly spaced notes.)

h - hammer on the next note.


THE MAIN PART:
Up-tempo 4/4 time.  The signature riff makes this song and the sheet
music doesn't give a clue about how to play it.

Thumb and two fingers are probably needed at a minimum.  In the first
bar, the thumb plays the A and D string notes. In the next two bars,
the thumb plays the E string notes, and in the fourth bar, it plays
the A and D string notes.

For the first measure, finger a normal Am chord.  I find it works
well in the third measure to alternate the 2-0-2 on the G string
between the index and middle finger (play the B string notes with
your middle finger, the first G string note with your index, the
second G string note with you middle finger again, and the next G
string note with your index finger again.  (just a suggestion).

About the artist behind Classical Gas Tab:

Classical music is a broad term that usually refers to music produced in, or rooted in the traditions of Western liturgical and secular music, encompassing a broad period from roughly the 9th century to present times.[1] The central norms of this tradition became codified between 1550 and 1900, which is known as the common practice period.

European classical music is largely distinguished from many other non-European and popular musical forms by its system of staff notation, in use since about the 16th century.[2] Western staff notation is used by composers to prescribe to the performer the pitch, speed, meter, individual rhythms and exact execution of a piece of music. This leaves less room for practices, such as improvisation and ad libitum ornamentation, that are frequently heard in non-European art music (compare Indian classical music and Japanese traditional music), and popular music.[3][4][5]

The public taste for and appreciation of formal music of this type waned in the late 1900s in the United States and United Kingdom in particular.[6] Certainly this period has seen classical music falling well behind the immense commercial success of popular music, in the opinion of some, although the number of CDs sold is not indicative of the popularity of classical music.[7]

The term "classical music" did not appear until the early 19th century, in an attempt to "canonize" the period from Johann Sebastian Bach to Beethoven as a golden age.[8] The earliest reference to "classical music" recorded by the Oxford English Dictionary is from about 1836.[9][10]
