------------------------------------------------------------------------- From: skvech@vt.edu (Steve Kvech) group: Soul Asylum song: Runaway Train (Intro Lick) album:Grave Dancers Union My first attempt at posting, so please be kind. I did this by memory of the song, and not by comparison with a CD At least this is better than no intro at all!
