This is kind of an elaborate test to see if this will make
it onto the newsgroup. Better than test test test. ~8^)

This piece is not for the faint-at-heart. The intro and 
extro are mildly abusive. I love it nonetheless. The 
fifth string (normally A) tunes *up* to a B. I find the 
pitch not too difficult to achieve (wincing sure helps).

The main body of the song is "roadmapped". Hopefully, it's
not too hard to follow. It cuts down on pages and pages
of TAB - just play the section indicated by the map. The
intro and extro were added as an afterthought.

My respects to Don, and apologies for mutilating his 
creation. Any questions, comments, or corrections would
be well received. Enjoy.
