tabbed by Fepo  (grave-digger2@web.de)

Hi Guys, a friend from me has asked me to TAB this Song for him due to his short left hand 
pinky problem 

The Main Riff is the Problem for him. So I put both Versions here into this TAB. 
Short pinky Main Riff and normal Pinky Main Riff.



Tuning: E A D G B e
