Continue improvising with those effects whilst rocking your
wah pedal on and off, the scale is very simple. No point tabbing.

                             -Short Drum Break-

"Nova meat" (5:31) Keyboard.

|-------------------------------15--14--15--14--12--14--12~-|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|

The effects fade off slowly...

...until there's nothing but a saxophone-keyboard trio. (Sax part above)

And that takes you to the end! Cool song, remember to give me feedback!
