                                Siberian Khatru
                          (guitar parts by Steve Howe)
                         transcribed by carl@netaxs.com

The parts may look disjointed, but it should all make sense once you
get the different riffs down.  Of course, following along with the
record is a good idea.  I just cranked out a quick 'fake' for the
harpsichord stuff because in the band I'm in now I have to do something
since all the keyboard stuff is done via my MIDI guitar.

Not perfect, but enough of a start to get some particular riffs figured out. Thanks, though it could've been better.

i agree about the opening riff bigsuit, but the main riff is absolutely perfect, except there shouldn't be a rest at the beginning of the measure.
