There is a excellent tab of this song on MXTABS.NET
written by, well, I don’t know. I would like to give
credit but I couldn’t find a name on the tab.
Anyway, it’s a great tab, it’s got everything but the
solos, so put this one together with that one and
you have a perfect tab of this song.

NOTE: in the tab of Grand Illusion on MXTABS.NET,
there is one mistake. Guitar 1 on the bridge has
it’s notes written 1 fret to high just on the first
stanza. Just pay attention and study it and you’ll
get what I mean.
