			Anybody Listening?
			      by
			   Queensryche

This is a great song from one of my favorite bands. I have taken the
song without permission from the songbook for Empire. I am doing
this from memory and I don't remember the lyrics or the lead.
Hope this is useful to someone. I also didn't try to annotate the rhythm.
You'll have to listen to the song for that.

Notation: ^ --> for clean and overdrive parts, the note the clean or overdrive comes in on " --> means this is chord is almost arpeggiated/strummed smoothly and slowly |o --> means repeat this section Questions and comments are welcome: Mike (MB2@VAXA.CLARION.EDU) From: Canteen Boy Here is the lead for the song Anybody Listening? by Queensryche. I don't have this part memorized (which is why I didn't include it before) so I am taking this right from the book. I hope you can use this.

That is all of the lead guitar parts for the song. I hope that this is useful and understandable. If you want other Queensryche songs, I also have the music for: Another Rainy Night (Without You) Best I Can Empire Jet City Woman One And Only Resistance Silent Lucidity Revolution Calling I Don't Believe In Love They are all from tab books or magazines and not my own interpretations. -- Mike (MB2@VAXA.CLARION.EDU)
