Solo:  I don't think the bars of this will match up with the bars
       of the backing.  It should be correct so just listen to the
       CD for timing.

Interlude 2: This took ages to figure because there is a lot going
             on all at the same time.  As a result, the keyboard
             part might not be exact but the guitar parts should be
             OK.

This was a real labour of love but it should be mostly correct.
Obviously there are parts that are really hard to hear and as a
result may not be perfect so don't hesitate in suggesting any
corrections.  As usual you comments are welcome.

Also, I encourage you to register a rating for this tab - whether it
be a good or bad one.  The only way I know that a tab needs improving
or not is if people give it a rating.  Thanks in advance.
