Sixteen Candles - The Crests tabbed by Rick in Macon with REAL help from DrSnoots. (Please see his comments to 
describe the "A minor walkdown" which I've tried to incorporate into this revision). Thanks again, Doc.

I gave this 5 stars. Can't find much, if anything, wrong. Plays very nicely. KK.

Here's a more accurate version. The intro is the same as the second art of the bridge. It's an Am walk down. If you don't know what this is, it's the same as the beginning of Stairway To Heaven and you should really know how to play this figure. It's used in many, many songs of all kinds.
