Good, done. Some things might not have the exact discrepancies Cliff played
for every little thing this time, but most all of them are there. Hope you
like it.

Wow. Yes. Thank you for this!! Looking at this, listening to the master track, and playing it (working on that part) this tab is good. I don't know that it is 100% but it is at least 99%! Thank you!
