There's actually some backrground humm here, but that should not be 
escpecially hard to figure out I use to do the easy things in a song 
first, therefore the solos ain't transcribed yet, It'll do without 
them right now, they usually take some time to transcribe and i feel 
like a sick mushroom right now...
