          This is great song. It's really atmospheric, but has 
          lightning fast guitar parts to it, and a smooth tom-tom
          intro or something.
          It's a pretty fast guitar piece, but when you get it, it's
          nice and satisfying.

           Add several  variations on the lead lines (sorry but I can't tab them)

          ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
          ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
          Finally finish with a repeat of the verse, and then the break, and end with
          an F on fret 3 on the d string ringing out.

good tab, I just work out something for the variations on the kind of lead parts. It would be nice if you could find out how many times it repeats though.
