Play Part 1 3x and end on first tone There's actually some backrground humm here, but that should not be escpecially hard to figure out I use to do the easy things in a song first, therefore the solos ain't transcribed yet, It'll do without them right now, they usually take some time to transcribe and i feel like a sick mushroom right now...
