OK, this is the actual version of this song, unlike all the
other ones by tones deaf idiots, espiecial the solo, which
absolutly pathetic in all the other versions i have seen.
This is probobly my best tab, but i wanted to get it
perfect cos there are no good versions out there, and
its a great song!
