Transcription by Hugo Pablo Ferpozzi

Gentlemen,
I 've transcribed Al's parts mostly, because Paco's parts are rimthmical
at first.
Maybe the positions of the fingers are not exactly the same, but
soundsthe most accurate way as possible.
Al plays a steel-string guitar using a pick (quite thin, I think), while
paco uses a nylon-string, of course, and for sure, using his fingers.
I couldn't transcribe all the song, it's just impossible, I wrote down
only the part
I can play following the music, after that, Al starts picking ultra-fast
and I get lost inmediatly.
I must thank Eric Shen because his transcriptions of the studio version
of Mediterranean Sundance helped me very much.
These tabs are a bit untidy perhaps, but that's all Tab 'o Bucket's
fault, though it's an useful soft.

I don't think that it would be a great idea to make the WHOLE tab from
this song, it would be impossible to read, thus impossible to play.

Above the lines there are the chords Paco plays, or some othernotes to
make it more
clear


  Part A:                               (x2)                     (strum)

Well, that's all I know. It's short but hard. For sure you'll need to =
listen
to the song to be able to understand this.
