Thanks! I play it in G as well, but not a huge fan of the open strings, so I'll just transpose it to another spot, but really appreciate it!

You can see where Jer plays it in this vid (he does it a coupla times throughout the song (one fairly clear example is at the 1min mark):

That's so funny, I transposed it up there, saw the video and was doing it just like Jer! Thanks for the help, was really appreciated. Now, one more question from you theory folks....Eb? Huh? Uh, why? How? And yet it works...
