Another Man's Cause  Levellers

Another Man's Cause
===================
By the Levellers - From the album "Levelling the Land"
 
 ------------------------------------------------------

This is a great song. Simple to play (like most of the Leveller's stuff),
but is enhanced by adding rythmic hammer-ons and pull-offs in the latter
stages. Listen to the song and get into it...
