It`s been a horrible week weather wise.
First time i`ve done this song,reading lyrics as i go.so far from perfect again.
Plenty of mistakes/bum notes from `The King Of Audio Torture`

Looks a difficult song to play neo, up and down the fret board in parts.  Well done for having a go at it.

Thanks - it's hard to get the timing right on the the descending part, and sing the words at the same time ... I kinda fumbled through it .... more practice required, but "time poor" at the moment ...
