(Why have you forsaken me, in your heart forsaken me...)

Thats pretty much it, its a pretty easy song. I play this song when I practice
with my band Relic and its perfect. You will be hearing about Relic in the near
future cause we got some  good songs that are sure to land us a deal. Peace.

This is the right way to play this piece towards the end-i've seen Daron play it many-a-times exactly like this.
