This tablature inspired by and previously transcribed by Derek Linklater
< dlinklater@ewu.edu >. The guitar solo is played as to make most of the
notes semi-pinched (partial-artificial harmonics). Those that totally
stand out are noted. Use your own judgement and may the Lerxst Be With
You, ...Always.
