Comment or message any ideas or corrections. Please rate my tab. If you've got
problems with the tab, I'd encourage you to contact me with those problems so I
can fix the tab or provide advice for playing. Don't just give me a poor rating
and not give me any feedback. The idea is for us all to work together to create
a perfect finished product. This tab just represents the best I can do. It's 
definitely up for peer review.



Key:
where # represents a fret number

#h# - hammer
#p# - pull
/ \ - slides, up and down respectively.
#b# - bend from normal note up to achieve bended note.
#r# - release bend from bended note to normal note.
#b  - a slight bend a.k.a. a curl or a lean.
 x  - mute
 ~  - Extend. Play a hammer or pull-off over a longer time period
 *  - time keeper. if you played a steady
      baseline, you'd see the notes are 
      displayed in the tab in the correct 
      chronological order. 
 &  - symbol substitution, for when symbols (like double digits)
      are too large to fit in with the time keepers.

Thanks for the feedback man, please just let me know if you find that I missed a note or skipped beat and I can fix it.
