I would like to join everyone in expressing my deepest sorrow and condolences in the
wake of Dimebag Darrell's murder.  This song kind of reminds me of this whole situation.
 This is my little tribute to Dime.

There's two guitar parts in this song.

Chorus (x2)

Then just keep repeating Guitar 2's verse part.

And that's my tribute to our dear departed Dimebag Darrell.  Dime, in the short time I
have been a fan of yours, you have really inspired me.  I'll never forget the first time
I heard "Walk" and that badass solo.  Words cannot fully express how thankful we are for
your great music and great personality.  I hope you're having an awesome jam session up
in Heaven with Cliff Burton, Randy Rhoads, Bon Scott, and John Bonham.  I miss you so
much.  Rest in peace, Dime.

Dimebag Darrell......August 20, 1966 - December 8, 2004
