===================================================================
November 2001: I recently went through this file and made a few
corrections. Some details of slides and bends were changed, and a
couple of typos (where the notes had been written on the wrong 
string!) were fixed. 
===================================================================


b = bend up
r = release bend

so 7b9    means play note fretted at 7th, bend up two semitones 
   7b9r7  means play note at 7th fret, bend up 2 semitones, then
            release the bend. Only strike the string once with the 
            right hand
   9r7    means bend 7th fret note up two semitones (without playing
          it first), strike the bent note and release it 

h = hammer on
p = pull off
/ = slide

Use moderate vibrato throughout on all sustained notes.

                      ^^^^^^^^^^^

In case your worried about this last bit, after bending the note you
hammer on the 14th fret with your *right* hand, then pull off and 
release the bend.

A bit tricky otherwise...

Enjoy!
