                 From the CD "Heaven Calling"
                   Words by Scott Springer
                   Music by John Elefante
             Matthew 17:20, Phillippians 3:13-14

           \  =  slide down     \w  =  whammy bar down

           p  =  pulloff         ^  =  bend (up pitch) 
           h  =  hammer on       v  =  bend (down pitch)

 Ron's Guitar Notes
 ==================

 #1 I use my pinky to crunch/mute the A note on the 5th fret of 
    the E string, then lay my first finger across the 2nd fret,
    barring the 4th, 3rd and 2nd fingers. It comes close to 
    mimicking the driving bass here.

 #2 You'll find the "lead-in solo" repeated in various parts of the
    song, (including the ending) with only slight variations on the
    few ending notes. (i.e. Sometimes a whammy down, sometimes a
    slide down the neck, etc.)

 #3 Barry Graul's solo incorporates a lot of slides into and out
    of particular starting and ending notes. I've tried to include
    all of the nuances of his technique, but if you're having trouble
    figuring it out at first... try ignoring all the 
    slides (/'s and \'s).  
    
    Also...
    Concerning " 15^17v15 " in the solo... the first note is picked
    then the string is bent upward one whole step and brought back
    down to the G note at the 15th. I wasn't sure if this would be
    clear to everyone.
