Subject: Allan Holdsworth's Looking Glass

=======================================================================
========================== LOOKING GLASS ==============================
========================= Allan Holdsworth ============================
=======================================================================

The structure of the tune is:

        Head1
        Ending1Head1
        Head1
        Ending2Head1
        Head2
        Ending1Head2

        ThatBeautifulTheme1
        Linkage
        Head2
        Ending1Head2

        SoloSection             (last time exit at the Ab#11...)
        ThatBeautifulTheme2     (...and take this to finish solo)
        Linkage

	Head2
        Ending1Head2
        Head1
        Ending2Head1


In terms of notation I've written the chordal phrases in TAB;
the top line being the high E string in a standard tuning scheme.
The solo section is given in terms of harmonies.  I'd like to
share ideas with others about voicings in the solo section.

Enjoy!...  and send me your Holdsworth charts,
	snippets, comments, etc.
