This should get you in the ballpark. I don't hear the steel in the initial walk-up from IV to V. I tabbed it through the cadence to I: the rest is A pedal noodling at fret 8 and then fret 3. Slurs matter here:

Hmmm.

The steel in the intro is certainly possible, I just can't definitely make it out in the mix there, but you're probably right.

The first run up to fret 15, I hear the arrival note as a G, not a B, hence the string pairing of 6 and 4 in my tab. Then, I hear the initial descent coming down from B, hence the 5 and 3 grip in my tab. After that, I just hear the whole sequence of licks as quintessential, archetypal, bread-and-butter C pedal. But if you hear it that way, you should absolutely play it that way. I'll be there Sunday keeping score. Razz Razz Razz

In any case, I'm pretty sure you don't want to end at 13 with a B pedal on 6 (B-flat), right?

I just tabbed out a "Mesmerized" version of it - done in Tabledit if you want the TEF file, let me know.
