File name: "yes-tales_from_t_o.txt" ((Version 1))

These transcribtion contains several (acoustic guitar) parts from the "Tales..."
-Album as I hear them; for this transcribtion I used the Steve Howe recording of 
it (guitar and vocals) which you can find at the "Yes, Friends and Relatives"-
Album (a really bad album). Following along with the record (Original or Howe-
Version) is a very good idea...

Perhabs I will complete this version with the rest of the interresting guitar
parts of the original album in a few years... 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Index:

1. Intro ("The Revealing Science of God")
2. and
3. Parts after the Intro (: 

4. Guitar part from "The Remembering" (As the silence of season...)

5. a.,b.,c. and d. Acoustic part of "The Ancient"              

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I.   "p" pull of 
II.  "h" hammer on
III. -*- 
     ---  (repeat)
