Open E Tuning    4/4 Timing

One of my favorite pieces. The entire song is based on emotion so good luck
trying match it. The music is rather upbeat and getting the solo to roll
smoothly is quite a challenge. Reading it is also a little difficult with all
the pulls and hammer-ons going on.

I would recommend listening to the song on Triumph's 'Thunder Seven', it is
the last track and is an instrumental to boot!

Good Luck!
