LONG TRAIN RUNNIN' - The Doobie Brothers

This song has a basic structure, but also a ton of variations, which I tried to figure out in their
right places. I divided the tab in sections for help, but the song is entirely tabbed. I decided to
put those "(x3times)" etcetera 'cause the tab would otherwise have been really endless...

Oh, just a suggestion: most hammer-ons could be played as slides, too... Follow your taste!
