Symphony X - The Haunting tab

This is the Haunting by Symphony X, I am not sure how many of you guys
are into this music, but I don't care, it kicks ass:)

I did not transcribe the solos, I just do not have the patience right 
now, maybe sometime:)

Also this is my first version, so there are probably some mistakes, 
hopefully not many...  if the format comes out weird, I apologize, 
hotmail does not have a very intelligent text editor..  well anyway 
here it is...
