Will Ackerman tabs for The impending death

Guitar tabs with lyrics

"The Impending Death of the Virgin Spirit",  by William Ackerman

This is kind of a mix between the studio version and the Windham
Hill in Concert video performance.  Both performances are cool
and aren't much different, but you may notice some phrasing
discrepancies.  This is basically how I play it.

BTW, this is easier than "Bricklayer", but more of a pain to get
in tune properly.  It's worth it though :-)
Tuning (low to high) :  A chord diagramC#C#  A chord diagramA augmentedA  A chord diagramC#C#  A chord diagramG#G#  A chord diagramA augmentedA  E,   then capo on 2nd fret

( keep in mind, with the capo on II, a notated '5' actually
  indicates the 7th fret, 11 is really a 13,....             )
