More than 9 months have passed since I first started tabbing this song. My only hope is that this work (that I personally enjoyed a lot) and the time I've spent for it is all worth it and helps whoever is out there in trouble trying to learn this masterpiece.

It has 33 instruments in total, 8 of which are played by Howe (guitar/sitar/vocals), 2 from Squire (bass/vocals), 1 from Bruford (drums), 3 from Anderson (vocals) and 19 from Wakeman (Hammond/RMI Electra Piano/Mellotron/Moog/Church Organ/Grand Piano).
It has 17 minutes and 18 seconds.

All made by ear. The hand positioning was tabbed by watching live recordings of the song from the band and by my personal knowledge of Steve Howe and Chris Squire's playing.

The instruments and pedals/amp settings were modified so that it sounds like the original song instruments, so please listen using Guitar Pro 6 and headphones, if possible.

If you have any suggestion/correction to the tab, be free to contact me in the website.

Hope you like it, and thank you.

Excellent work, indeed!! I love the improvements you've made on the guitar arrangement. Just a staggering piece to learn! I'll spend the rest of my life chasing Howe's playing on this one.
