Key:
~ Sustain the note
^ Bend - e.g '12^14' means bend from 12 up to 14, 
             '14^12' is to release the note back to the 12th fret. 
\ Downward slide
/ Upward slide
X Palm mute
* Harmonic
() Ghost note.. u don't have to play it

Its kinda rusty on the structure side but it's a start.. 
Listen to the cd to get the rhythms.. Any accuracy found in the tab is
purely coincidental ;)
