Guitar Tableture for FATES WARNING's - Down To The Wire
Transcribed by Jesse Rink (WalkerBoh@aol.com) 

Notes:  I realize it may not be 100%, but what do you expect?!? It's darn 
close and you will probably be quite happy with it.  Relatively short and 
repetitive rhythms, and an easy solo, make the song quick to learn. So
have 
fun and leave any comments to my email address listed above.  see ya...

I'm always looking for new Dream Theater and Fates Warning tabs... If you
have any you'd like to send me, let me know!  Up The Irons!!

Notation:  x = mute 
           / = slide up
           \ = slide down
           p = pull off
           h = hammer on
          () = 2nd time through play THESE notes instead
         (b) = bend full step up
         (B) = bend half step up
               I did not add vibrato key notation.  Use your head.
