               -----------------------

               Tablature Symbols Used:


 (/)    - Legato Slide (Blank space indicates length of slide)
 ()    - Ghost Note/Tied Note/Implied Note

                  -----------
                  Song Notes:
                  -----------

 The low-end of the piano is augmented by (and, in many cases, substituted for)
 the bass guitar notes which are essential for playing the song with or without
  a piano. Billy's piano style is unusual, and his left hand leaves a lot of
  work for the bassist to do by very often note providing the root note(s)
  for what is being played. Consult my Guitar Pro tab to hear what I mean.
