                PRELUDE TO MADNESS

based on "The Hall of the Mountain King" by Grieg


NOTE: For this tab, the bass is tuned completely to D (D - G - C - F), not "drop D", as in
Savatage's early albums.

Also, I opted to play the C & G in the chorus on the 5th fret instead of using open strings
because the fretted note doesn't ring out like open notes do.
