                This is my first tablature, so if there are any questions or comments please

(Standard Tuned Acoustic)
The prelude follows a 4/4 rhythm, and is right after "Crimson Sunrise"
The rest of the song is in a 3/3.  It will make your life 82.5 times easier
if you listen to the song a couple of times while reading the tab.  Enjoy.

Other helpful hints:
--------------------

There are a couple of changes in the tempo that I wasn't able to add.  Listen
to the CD, and you'll know what I mean.  Also, definitely don't forget to
drastically slow down during the last line.
