Subject: TAB: Emerson, Lake & Palmer: THE SAGE (PICTURES AT...)

This song is taken from the album PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION (Mussorgsky).
But it is NOT written by Mussorgsky. On the CD there is a synthizer part
leading into the song, but it doesnt belong to it. Lake plays full in
acoustic. Tab isnt good for timing, thus you will have the record with
you or you know it by heart. If somebody does some changes to the tab,
i would like to have a copy. 

And one REQUEST : I cant get the right lyric. So send me if possible, yeah!

EXPlainations:
/\ : Slide
!5!:Harmonic note
h,p:hammer pull (on/off): (with feeling)
(3):optional note
~~~:Notes under this are strummed quickly, just acros the strings
R  :Lets have a rest here.

Now lets tab a lot:

THE SAGE (by Lake) : also Emerson, Lake & Palmer

the intro, also for the first verse

Go back again (you know up where) and leave out the last 2 measures 
(the last one, which is to play twice, and the last but one)
