Riff G: this part has a lead which I've tabbed above the rhythm part.
        The lead part may appear a little scrunched up but listen to
        the CD for the correct timing.

Riff I: this is the trumpet part arranged for guitar.  I play this
        using just the single notes but you could add the octave on
        if you want a slightly more robust sound.

Solo: this took about 7 hours!  The mega fast runs aren't exact
      (good enough to get you by though) but all the melodic parts
      are correct I think.  To save space I've had to omit spaces
      between notes in the fast parts.
