 Modified 23.2.1994.

 The tempo is 120 and it's played in common time (4/4) and those
 '1    2    3    4' markings mean where the 1/4 notes are played. I really
 tried to get those timings but I'd still like to hear corrections and
 other comments about them. Bass is very simple... just follow the chords.

 I got some additions and corrections to this. One new riff and some changes
 in chords.

 Guitars 1 & 2 are overdrive guitars
 Guitars 3 & 4 are 'clean' ones

 Ah = Artificial harmonic
 H  = Hammer on
 Pm = Palm muting
 (5)-\/-\/-\ = 'Bend' down with bar & wibrate

Bridge: (in here the Gtr3 plays something but it's so quiet in background that I can't figure it out. Try some arpeggios if you want it)

The structure of the song: Rhy.fig1 Rhy.fig2 (1st verse) Rhy.fig1 (X2) (Chorus) Rhy.fig2 (2nd verse) Rhy.fig1 (X2) (Chorus) (3rd verse) After the chorus all guitars are quiet for 8 measures, exept for that 1/8 Pm strumming and fill1 which is played at 6th measure. Rhy.fig2 starts from 9th measure without Gtr3 which comes along in Bridge part Rhy.fig1 (X2) (Chorus) Repeat Chorus couple of times and fade ------- when you don't see me it's not a matter of going to grow it's not a matter of time or how I feel I'm throwing off the shadow of a better man now what you see is what you never had get real get another I don't exist when you don't see me I don't exist when you're not here what the eye don't see won't break the heart you can make believe when we're apart but when you leave I disappear when you don't see me... oh, it's kind of different when you're there you can lease the peace of mind you bought a mask, I put it on you never thought to ask me if I wear it when you're gone you never learned you bought me everything and less I turned you couldn't let me move I guess, I don't deny, it don't disprove what you see is what you lost if I were you I wouldn't try -- Mikko Issakainen miissaka@silmu.jyu.fi miissaka@tukki.jyu.fi
