This was tabbed using the cheapest word processing program money can buy 1.0

A lot of the ad-lib solo stuff I know how to do, just can't write out
it either won't fit, or I'm having a lot of trouble with timing.
If it's that important to you I have it written out separately with .wav
files at 1/3 and 2/3 speed so you can learn slow and build up from there
email me for it...  Keep on Strummin'!!!!
