THIS IS THE PART THAT I THINK THE SLIDE GUITAR IS OVER-DUBBED.
IT CAN’T POSSIBLY BE PLAYED BY CALEB AS HE’S IN STANDARD TUNING THROUGHOUT.
THE SLIDE GUITAR PART IN QUESTION, STARTS ON THE 3RD BAR OF THE LAST
ARPEGGIATED BIT, AND IT’S TAB IS:

d -X—-X-

[B] [-9-/-12-]
[G] [-9-/-12-]

D -X—-X-
G -X—-X-
D -X—-X-

SO YOU CAN DECIDE WHAT PART YOU WANT TO PLAY!
