_______________________________________________________________________________

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.
