Repeats until end: fade out. Phew! That crazy solo is untabbable! I love steven's guitar playing because its so he's got his own style. Enjoy playing this strange but brilliant song... | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note ===============================================================================
