Band: Dream Theater
Album: Systematic Chaos
Song: Constant Motion

I wrote this tab writing first all the riffs played by Petrucci in the song (and 
them), then i wrote the sequence of the riffs, writing only the numbers that I gave to them.
In this way I saved a lot of space, so you can print this tab easily (without using too many papers!).
