For the intro: I tried to play the long note as a slide note. I have to say
that it sounds much better.

Tab notation followed:-----------------
10^12   : slide from 10th to 12th fret
10^(12) : bending (one tone) on 10th fret
(12)^10 : descending bend note on 10th fret
10vv    : vibrato note
10>12   : hammer on
12<10   : pull off

        I'm not sure about this ending...I have not found my CD
        Communique at home. This transcription may be not totally

Lack of formatting. Lack of accuracy. Tab incomplete. the lyrics are completely wrong, the format is sloppy, and it is incomplete. though the basic chords do seem to be correct.
