-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notes :

This is one of the easiest King Diamond songs, IMHO, but it's a good one 
nevertheless. It can be played by one guitarist and a keyboard player with
the keyboard taking the "Solo" and the guitar keeping the rhythm going.

The solo is played this way : you go down the string playing a repeating 
pattern of one note and the other two frets away from the first 
( i.e., 19 and 21, 18 and 20, etc. ) until you reach the last note on the 
tab. It's only and aprox, because it doesn't sound like he ( the one 
playing the solo :-) is following a scale or something.

This is dedicated to Fernanda.

Esto es para el Asterix : Oye cabron, mandame un mail!!! se me perdió tu
dirección y tengo algunas preguntas que hacerte :-) BTW, el CD llego al
chingaso ( que significa muy bien ). Andale, no te hagas del rogar...
