----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Notes: -Bar lines indicate measures of 4/4 time. -Dots (...) located under any staff are for timing, and indicate where the downbeats (1234) fall. -I don't think the final three staves are 4/4 time all the way through, but I'm not sure what the time signature shifts are. That part is all 8th notes, and using the timing dots under the staff will show where 8th rests occur. -More Max Webster tabs (and other Canadian band tabs) can be found on my tab website.
