                                   Song Notes:
                                  ============


Guitar 3 uses a delay setting of 1000 milliseconds to achieve the synchronised
60/120 BPM echo effect, with a feedback setting of 1 so as to only produce a
single "response" to what is being played.  Delay is only used during riffs 1
and 2, and any later repetitions of those riffs.
