The product of a pretty much full 10 hours, I decided to tab this song because I could
never find a tab with the solo (which has to be one of JDB's best) on it... I've tested
it a good few times and it seems 90-95% accurate, but if you can correct something let 
me know in the comments or by mail.. Enjoy!
