I didn`t include the guitar solo because all the little nuances
(bend here, use slide here, bend-and-release here, etc.) make
It a bitch to get into ASCII notation. It`s fairly simple to
Play if you can get the hang of using a slide on and off
(easier said than done!). I`m not sure if my "b" and "r"
Notation is standard, so if you don`t understand, feel free to
Drop me a line and I will clarify myself.
