Hope you all love it, and if anyone covers it, please show me, I'd love to see it. Send
questions or random fortune cookie quotes my way at CanasClone@gmail.com. This was all
by yours truly, CanasClone.

Legend at the end.

NOTE: This is one guitar format, but Buckethead has two guitars on this, or at least two
outputs with different effects. In other words, this first part and the weird bend part
01:46 aren't going to sound the same because the muted notes and semi-harmonic notes are 
tones.
