A Flock Of Seagulls - I Ran So Far Away tab

 The intro starts out with a seagull sounding noise. This sound comes from Paul Reynold's guitar.
To make this sound simply mute the strings and slide your pick down the strings to make a
seagull effect.  Now I should warn you, I'm not good at making tabs! But I know these 
correct because I have studied videos and I have the master track recording of paul 
on I ran.
