Band: Paradise Lost
Album: The Plague Within
Song: Return to the Sun
Tuning: ADGCFAD

============================================================================================================

Notes
+ I wasn't sure what to label some of the parts of the song as the structure varies from the traditional
+ Intro Rhythm: the last note of each trio is almost a pull off to get that extra sound
+ Intro Lead part 2 Lead is played tremolo style
+ The final chord of the song is a D power chord

============================================================================================================
