Note:

I didn't write this tab, but I found it at this site:

http://perso.club-internet.fr/fbiramba/ (we're in the year 2001 now...)

I uploaded this tab, because I've been trying really hard to find it, and I don't want
everyone to have to go through that. I strongly recommend that you visit their site
(they update all the time anyway).

Well here it is, pretty accurate, too! Enjoy!
