Powerman 5000 - Top Of The World tab

Top of the World
Tuning: Drop D (EBGDAD)

I put this tab into two parts- guitars 1 and 2. They are seperate so
it's easier to follow each part.  Also, to make it easier to read
copy and paste the tab into Microsoft Word or something and set the
side margins to 0.7".  As for accuracy, some notes may be off but
I am confident it's at least 90% ok, unlike the song which is 100%
awesome.  Enjoy!

Update 1: I went back and re-tabbed some of the parts, especially
the bridge.  I think it sounds better now, and it looks really cool.
I think it's probably about 99.99999997% accurate, if not perfect.

Update 2/5/07: Fixed a few notes here and there.

Update 3/13/07: Fixed Solo even more, now it really sounds accurate, ending parts of verse for guitar 1
