Tabbed by Nick Wellings,  nickwellings@hotmail.com 

10.8.00

CD times in parenthesis

Notes: A warm clean tone to start off quiet then build to
great creschendo.Start with volume low then increase when
you want *but* gradually and logically.
Use small amount of reverb. This is basically a transcription 
of what Carlos has played, feel free to simplify or change it. 
Sometimes I find it better not to completely stick to a more
complex tab like at the end and I just try to make something 
easier up.

       h - hammer on
       p - pull off
       b - bend string up
       r - release bend
       / - slide up
       \ - slide down
       v - vibrato more v's=more vib
       t - right hand tap
       x - play 'note' with heavy damping
