Greetings,

Following this paragraph is my transcription to All that I Bleed, please
post it to the Savatage web site.  I feel that it's particularly accurate
and it includes the solo...  If at all possible, could you leave the
explanations at the start of the tab?  

Thanks,

All that I bleed -- Savatage
From the album "Edge of Thorns"

Transcribed by Pat Cyr (shadowvale@igs.net)

Tuning : E A D G B E 	Time Signature: 4/4
Key of Bb

----------------------

Here is a beautiful piece by Savatage, a truly brilliant showcase of Criss
Oliva's guitar work.  Most chordal sections are based on Brian Pastor's
(kingfrog@prolog.net) previous posting of the song, all other parts are
mine.  

It must be stressed that the feeling of this song relies heavily on the
nuances of the guitarist's playing (Anybody who's listened to Criss knows
that).  This is a bare-bones version of the song, limited only by the
notational aspects of tablature.  It is sensibly the way I play it with my
band, with the obvious embellishments being added while it is performed.

I can be contacted at the email address below for any errors, omissions,
comments or just for general Savatage/music/guitar discussions...

Please take a few minutes and visit ShadowVale's web site at

Most importantly, leave your mark and sign the guestbook so we know who
and where the Savatage fans are!

Enjoy,

   Someone       got  themselves a letter   in the mail the other day.

   Bb      F   Eb             F              Bb       F     Eb
