These two riffs go on top of each other to make the sound more full. These
start at "Ramble on, now's the time, the time is now. Sing my song..."

This song takes a little practice to get the feel for some of these riffs.
Riff.1 should be easy to pick up and the solos are really easy. Have fun
with this one and get someone to play the acoustric riff while you try to
tackle the electric riffs. It should sound pretty nice when complete.

Thanks to Danny Felstiener for his TABEDIT 1.4 program!
