Allan Holdsworth - City Nights

This is an instrumental, there are NO lyrics.

This is a challenge for even the experienced guitarist.  Warmup
thoroughly before tackling this piece.  There's TONS of legato
phrasing and lots of wide stretching.  Allan has the smoothest
lead style I've ever heard.  His solo stuff is awesome, so was
his band UK.  Check him out!
