Alright kids, back with another tab. The Reverend definitely raises
the bar in terms of difficulty. Jim Heath is an exceptional guitarists and
it was quite a pain to tab this out. I definitely have 
my work cut out for me since there are a couple of 
other songs of his I plan on tabbing. But it was 
definitely worth it nonetheless. This is the 23rd 
track off of their 6th album. A great greatcover 
from one of the most influential artists in history. 
I'm about 85% sure on this tab. There are some walking 
bass notes in the solos that Jim finger picks that I 
couldn't really figure out yet. So, I just tabbed the main
parts for us finger picking noobies. Strums not exact. Let's go!
