Ta-da!  Here it is.  The transcription for all of Yes'

"Close to the Edge".  Let me give a little advice for 

folks that want to play it:



- Some parts are really easy to play, but overall the song

  will take a fair amount of work to get down.  

- for those hard parts, the transcription alone won't do it.

  you'll need to  listen to the song (probably a zillion 

  times) to get Chris' phrasing down.  It's tough!  And his

  tone doesn't make it any easier (trust me on this one).



Anyway, there's two or three little fills that I missed. 

Sorry.  If anyone has any comments on this, please mail me.

Enjoy!
