Trial of Tears  Dream Theater

Title : Trial Of Tears
Artist : Dream Theater
Album : Falling Into Infinity
Transcribed by : Shane Woolcock (woolcock@camtech.net.au)
This is an incomplete tab for Trial Of Tears - I started the guitar solo, and then
decided not to bother, since the tab book has been released for FII. This may help
those people who haven't got the book yet.
