 of slides, hammerons, pulloffs, bends, etc.
 These notes are right, though.)

Great Tab/Chords, although i might suggest that the first set of chords "By:mr thompson" include that they should be played on --CAPO 4-- to play along with the second set which needs no capo. Thanx, once again great job. ^_^
