			     THE PRICE YOU PAY - Savatage
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Benjamin Gheysels
Date: 2005-7-12
Album: Hall of the mountain king

Tuning: standard tuning

| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off

| .  Mute note

This is not completely accurate, but it's close.

Play with distortion and chorus. I've added between brackets when a riff starts
(e.g. Riff 2 starts after 23 seconds)
