Okay, the majority of Vai requests have been for this song.  Although I
must disagree with those who think that this and "Touching Tongues" are the
best songs on the album; what about "Sex & Religion" or "Survive"?  Those
songs kick ass!
I didn't tab "Touching Tongues" because the rhythm track requires a 7-
string guitar, and the lead requires delay and a WHAMMY pedal.  I don't
think the average guitarist has those things handy. :)
Anyway, all you need for this song is an acoustic guitar, an eletric
guitar, and a hell of a lot of patience!  Some of the chords are a pain in
the ass (or should I say fingers?).
Some notes on the way I do ascii tab:  "p" - pull-off
                                       "h" - hammer-on
                  "v"s in front of a chord - upstroke
                                      "nh" - natural harmonic

It gets really orchestrated and complex after this. If all you really wanted was the intro, there it is. If you want more, ask me nicely. Augmentations/Questions/CONSTRUCTIVE Criticism welcome!
