Dr Manhattan - Gunpowder A Ballet tab

Gunpowder: A Ballet by Dr. Manhattan
Tabbed by Nick Culliton, bid_you_Farewell@live.com (send corrections!)

Dr. manhattan plays with a keyboard and a guitar. I’ve attempted to tab most of both 
Note that it will sound a little weird with guitar alone. Some of the chords in this tab 
the ones that are really used but sound fine. This is a simplified version of the real song.
This is my second full song tab. Please comment/rate
