I'd been searching high and low for a transcription of this amazing song
forever. I never found one so I decided to try and work it out on my own.
Let me warn you folks though that I didn't exactly try that hard to get it
note-perfect like some of you hardcore people do. So take this tab for what
it is and that's just my own version of the song - the way I play it, the
way I hear it through my normal stereo speakers. Enjoy yo'self!
