What a song. One of my favourite Vai tunes by far.
I was sittin down playin guitar one night and i said.
i cant find any tab for that song, and i wanna learn it.
so i sat next to my stereo for an hour with my guitar
and figured it out for you lovely people. Aren't you lucky.
Course theres a few bugs, and i'm missing bits, but anywhere
theres somethin missing, i have times put over the next part
so you can pick it up easy. i hope it's all good

Enjoy
