Notes:
I thought I'd tab this wicked song.
It's my favourite yet. Not because of it's length, but because if I were to play a TMV
live, this would be it (well... Day of The Baphomets or a Fully Blown hour version of
Gemini would be awesome too...)

The track can be found on the TMV site:
I did it in 444 moves!

Staccato hit and stop dead.

And that the end to the shortest "full-length" TMV song ever!

Legend:
h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
~ = let ring
#b = bend up (in this tab its up a tone only)
b# = bend down to that note.
tr = trill
(#) = note played with little emphasis. (Or by accident, on purpose)

Enjoy...
