This is an improvement of what's already at the archive, I fixed th Intro part, which had many errors, and added the solo, which was not in the original:

Sorry for the "rag-tag" look of this. I got part of it from Alt.guitar, and did the rest myself. Oh well, here it is....

(guitar solo, played over intro fig.) (This second guitar solo is almost identical to the first, with very slight variations on the same basic: --------10 --10/12 and --------12 --12/14-- themes!)

I never realized the nevada one didn't have the solos, since I already knew it, I haven't looked at them. Well, this is going to be the whole song (or the itnro anyway), but the solo is in there. It may not be perfect, this was tabbed from playing by ear, but it sounds good to me, and it's how I've been playing it for a long time.
Enjoy... ---
