                      Greg Lake: I believe in Father Christmas
                     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From:                Emerson, Lake & Palmer: Works II/Return of the 
                                                      Manticore

Transcription by:    Rainer Boettchers (boettchers.pad@sni.de)
                     Paderborn/Germany, July 1996

Tuning:              DADGBE (DropD)

Comments:            The guitar parts of IBIFC on Works II and Return of
                     the Manticore are the same. Some chords seems rather
                     strange but in most cases I am certain Greg plays it 
                     that way. Hard work to write it down ... took me some 
                     hours, the rest is up to you.
                     h=half, q=quarter, e=8th, s=16th, s^=16th triplets
                     THIS SONG ALSO AVAILABLE IN TABESTRY FORMAT (.TBS)
