                Tony MacAlpine's   "Key to the City"
                from the PolyGram CD _Maximum Security_
            Transcribed by Jaime Reza (turin@soda.berkeley.edu)
     	                   (solo included)
               (fast stuff approximated but sounds close :))

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
        (b - bend) (a.h. - artificial harmonic) (p-pull off)
        (h - hammer on) (~ - vibrato)(s - slide)(tb- tremolo bend)
                                                (td-tremolo dive)

Basically, Chorus 1 has a beginning that is played with end 1, then
repeated again but with end 2,  then with an extension, then beginning
is repeated but with end 3.

"Chorus 1":
