If anyone has solos to any King Diamond or Mercyful Fate songs please drop me
a line at pige@deakin.edu.au, I would appreciate any small transcriptions that
people have done, it would be a great help as I'm trying to transcribe as many
as I can. Even if you don't have any transcriptions to hear from any
King Diamond/Mercyful Fate fans would be cool.
