Title: Contra (first 3 levels)
Artist: The Minibosses (http://www.minibosses.com)
Tabbed by: David Howarth (davwhsdb@yahoo.com)

Man, this took forever to tab out.  Alrighty, this is mostly correct.  There
might be one or two places where it sounds a little weird but it all sounds
correct when played along with the original song.  I play it with a little
bit of distortion and a little bit of chorus.  

This is my first tab, so lemme know if you like it or if you think it sucks.
...well, don't tell me if you think it sucks; I don't care.  Someday I'd
like to also post Wizards and Warriors but I'm still figuring out the intro.
Also, on a side note, I can beat the original Contra NES game in 14 minutes
without dying ;)
