=======================================================================
========================== LOOKING GLASS ==============================
========================= Allan Holdsworth ============================
=======================================================================

The structure of the tune is:

    Head1
    Ending1Head1
    Head1
    Ending2Head1
    Head2
    Ending1Head2

    ThatBeautifulTheme1
    Linkage
    Head2
    Ending1Head2

    SoloSection       (last time exit at the Ab#11...)
    ThatBeautifulTheme2   (...and take this to finish solo)
    Linkage

	Head2
    Ending1Head2
    Head1
    Ending2Head1


In terms of notation I've written the chordal phrases in TAB;
the top line being the high E string in a standard tuning scheme.
The solo section is given in terms of harmonies. I'd like to
share ideas with others about voicings in the solo section.

Enjoy!... and send me your Holdsworth charts,
	snippets, comments, etc.
