Solo goes on some mor bars then it fades.. you should be able to figure
the out the last bars...


"Let freedom ring"

"Oh Rock of ages do not crumble love is breathing still"
"Oh Lady Moonshine down, a little people magic if you will"

This tab was created with the help of an Amiga computer and the sampling
software Audiomaster IV, under the menu effects/duration/pitch the
frequency and the pitch can be doubled, thus enabling the program to play
back the sample at half the speed but with the original pitch.

this tab is actually very good, with one exception. id like to ask what an "H" chord is? simply just a typo? Some clarification regarding the Rythm part of Suzie Q would be nice thanks.

I think the 'H' was a type maybe he ment 'G'?
