Finale
This is, as expected, the part I’m the least sure about.  It seems Robert is using his
strumming “banjo” technique here.  This should sound pretty close:

*Each chord is held and strummed vigorously
|-/22------17---14---10-------|
|-/19------14---11---7--------|
|-/19------14---11---7--------|

Notes:
•  Space is almost equal to time.  Quicker parts are closer together, slower parts are
apart, but it isn’t perfect – just listen to the song, it’s easier for both of us.

•  Much time was spent deliberating over the aggressive chords... I used my ears and my
and this is what I got.  They’re all *extremely* close, if not dead-on.  (Live footage
used to look at fingerings.  Also, the third chord does sound uncharacteristically
Much time and effort was spent on this one, and I am almost 100% positive it is correct
listen very, very closely, watch some videos, and if you don’t like it just use
else.)

•  Many times the violin modulates above the guitar, while the guitar stays the same.

•  I believe Fripp plays/played this piece on an at least 24-fret guitar.  For those
guitars which don’t reach that high, I’ve transposed the high parts up a string.
