Ritchie Blackmore 
Title: "Lovely Joan (The Spirit Flies Free)"
Album: "Blackmore's Kingdom" '98             
________________________________________

The song seems to be celtic ballad, so take care
that notes under beat marks will be accented
(emphazed) pretty noticeably (more accented
under | - less under ,). This concerns only
riffs A, A2 & B. C & D are lyric and flowing,
you can even play 'em as separate song.
For all riffs let strings ring thruout.

/\ - slide up/down
h  - hammer on
p  - poul off
~  - vibrato
s  - strum (always downward), written above affected row. 
Cx - barre at x-th fret, written under affected row.

||o-o||||---|| repeat twice parts concluded in such bracets.||o-o||
