Please listen to the recording for the exact phrasing
of the song. This is in no way 100% accurate or complete.
Remember, these tabs are free, if you want an accurate
and complete tab, go to your local music store and shell out
$25.00 for a book...Don't complain to the person posting the
tabs...If we were that good, we'd be working for the guitar
magazines...
