Comments:
        Put simply, this is a cool song, and is technically quite
challenging.  This tab contains nearly all the riffs from the song
minus the lead bits, and one or two transitions.  All in all I 
think this is a pretty accurate translation.  Play away!!

That's the gist of it folks...quite the song, I really like this tune
(even though I can't play it very well!).  Anyway, enjoy the tab, and
if you figure out any of those lead bits, give me a shout...
