Notes :

This is one of the best songs ever written, IMHO. Altough the guitar is
quite easy, it's also a joy to play. This version (the only live version
of this song that I've heard) is better than the one included in
"B-sides themselves", mainly because of the extended solo at the end.

Some of the bars are longer than others; this is because I wanted to
put the lyrics over the music as accurate as I could, and because singers
don't follow the bars of music, this was kind of hard to do.

Guitar4 is only used in the " But the Samaritan.." part, so if you don't have
a delay unit, don't worry : just listen to the song, and try to play the
resulting notes without delay.

Solo1 and Solo2 are only "interpretations", that is, some of the notes were
difficult to hear because of the prasing Steve uses and because I ain't very
good at hearing solos; but the phrases (specially in Solo1) are close to
being note-for-note.

Also, don't expect to play this song without hearing the recording first.
And sorry for the lyrics, but, as you may have noticed, English isn't my
natural languaje, so I'm prone to make grammatical mistakes (hmm....)

This is my first tab, so, if you find any mistake, please, e-mail me or send
the correction to the tab archives.

Without any further wate of time, here it is!!
"This is dedicated to all the drunk and the ??????????????????,
this is called Cinderella Search "

 From 3:11 to 4:02, RhyFig1 is repeated 7 times; at the end of the 2nd and
 4th time, the keyboard plays Fill2. With that out of the way, I'm gonna
 tab all the volume swells that Steve plays in each of the 7 times.

Well, maybe it's just me, but I think it's pretty darn close to the
recording, but, as I said, maybe it's just me :-)

If someone actually uses this and wants more, I'm working (among
other things) on transcriptions to Forgotten Sons, Incubus and
Market Square Heroes (all live from the R2R album).
And I'm planning on transcribing Emerald Lies to complete the R2R
album, but, because I don't like that song very much, it's gonna take
some time to do it.

Any comments, flames, requests, or if someone knows how to play any
Steve Vai-era David Lee Roth songs or any Kansas song (except
Dust in The Wind and Carry On..) , please feel free to e-mail me at :
