OK, it should be all there unless I've forgotten something.
As usual, any comments, suggestions or corrections are
welcome.

Also, I encourage you to register a rating that reflects the
quality of this tab.  The only way I know that a tab needs
improving or not is if people give it an accurate rating.
Thanks in advance.
