well that's about it. If its looks intimidating, its not, really. Once I

figured it out it me about an hour to learn it and nail it down. Some parts

are kinda fast so be careful. I tried to get the timing by placing the notes

but its hard to do, you'll just have to listen to the song to figure out

where everything goes. Any comments and/or suggestions and/or requests are

strongly encouraged, my address is dvirgini@wnec.edu . I also have Hummer,

Soma, Silverfuck, and Drown transcribed but I haven't gotten around to

submitting them yet. Give me a little time. Till next time, rock on!
