Solo goes on some mor bars then it fades.. you should be able to figure the out the last bars... "Let freedom ring" "Oh Rock of ages do not crumble love is breathing still" "Oh Lady Moonshine down, a little people magic if you will" This tab was created with the help of an Amiga computer and the sampling software Audiomaster IV, under the menu effects/duration/pitch the frequency and the pitch can be doubled, thus enabling the program to play back the sample at half the speed but with the original pitch.
