Comments: In a lot of places I arranged two guitars for one, simply because college has
started and I have enough to worry about without having to add extra staves for the
second guitar just because of a couple notes difference.  People used to using tab won't
have a problem with this anyway.  If you spot a mistake, let me know so I can fix it and
make everything better for everybody :)  Later.

The first two sections of Fill 1 are repeated one octave higher, but instead of playing
the last section, it turns into a solo, and I don't tab leads unless I figure them out on
accident or somehow coincidentally.  Sorry.
