"Possession" by The Sisters of Mercy (from the album "First And Last And Always")
=================================================================================

transcribed by Peter Wake 

 
Intro

       ;;;;;;;;;
       some of these notes are quite fast
 
* Note that you can play this either by sliding up an octave (which
can be tricky for beginners) or by playing the octave of the A on the
D string.  (No slide and D, fret 7 instead of 17).  The original uses
a slide.

Four times.  Or you can play it on the A string 5 and 7 for variety
from time to time.
