"  - tremolo note        <> - Trill

I think this version is better than the previous one.

Most of the times, two (-) are equal to one 16th note (if else,
i'll indicate it) to lighten the reading of the tabs.
The numbers above the measures are the time signatures.

For the rythm, you have to listen to the CD even if I tried my best
to reproduce it in tab notation.
So, as always, I'm not claiming that this is a perfect tab. It's
simply my interpretation of the song, how I like to play it.

Of course, any suggestions, improvements or comments are welcome.

By the way, the first guitar is panned in the right speaker and the
second guitar is panned in the left speaker.
