Anybody Listening? by Queensryche
This is a great song from one of my favorite bands. I have taken the song without permission from the songbook for Empire. I am doing this from memory and I don't remember the lyrics or the lead. Hope this is useful to someone. I also didn't try to annotate the rhythm. You'll have to listen to the song for that.

Here is the lead for the song Anybody Listening? by Queensryche. I don't have this part memorized (which is why I didn't include it before) so I am taking this right from the book. I hope you can use this.

This next part comes in after the line: "I've just begun to see the light." the first time and after "...and there's not much I can do..." the second time.

That is all of the lead guitar parts for the song. I hope that this is useful and understandable. If you want other Queensryche songs, I also have the music for: Another Rainy Night (Without You) Best I Can Empire Jet City Woman One And Only Resistance Silent Lucidity Revolution Calling I Don't Believe In Love
They are all from tab books or magazines and not my own interpretations.
