  Though this tablature is based on the original score , it does certainly
contains many mistakes... I hope you will forgive me ;^) ! By the way if
you don't agree with anything, just E-mail me to the address above. Your
comments are also welcome !! (Please send compliments in priority 8-) )

                    -------------------------------

  Transcribing this composition of the great John McLaughlin hasn't been
very easy and it took me numerous hours of work; hopefully I'm 17, thereby
I've got a lot of freetime and guitar is a real passion for me, so I tried
to do my best to allow peoples who can't read solfa to play this masterpiece.
You may have to listen to the CD to find the correct timing, as it's very
difficult to put a lot of symbols on a tab without making it unreadable...

Note: The | on the tab symbolises the bar line : I tried to respect it but
it's hard to write a 2 figure number in only 1 character; when you read
something like --121110-- it means you have to play fret 12, then 11, and
finally 10.

Presto Intro (crochet = 184) 4/4  -  Let notes ring

Here start the 'improvisations' of John, Al and Paco on the same chords :

                    Em(7) D C(7) F(7) Am(7) G C B7

Finally, they play the intro again and that's all (But I fear this expression
isn't really appropriate, sorry...)
