Notes:  I have a 7-string version of this tab for anybody who
        doesn't have a guitar with at least 23 frets.  I will
        gladly email the notepad file upon request.  Also thanks
        to Nomad for help with Riff B.

Tunning: A E A D F# B


Intro: (clean) I think this is played on a 12-string but it sounds OK
       like this.

Riff G: this part has a lead which I've tabbed above the rhythm part.
        The lead part may appear a little scrunched up but listen to
        the CD for the correct timing.

Riff I: this is the trumpet part arranged for guitar.  I play this
        using just the single notes but you could add the octave on
        if you want a slightly more robust sound.

Solo: this took about 7 hours!  The mega fast runs aren't exact
      (good enough to get you by though) but all the melodic parts
      are correct I think.  To save space I've had to omit spaces
      between notes in the fast parts.
