    Thank you SGM...... I'm printing as we speak and will go over it as time allows.

    I got thinking about it and figured maybe there are others that may not understand it.............. or maybe I'm still in the dark ages of putting the record on and playing it............ ;D

    You're welcome! I still learn by ear mostly, but i will read the tab if my ears fail me. :)

    First quick glance and it doesn't look too bad. Maybe with tab and the ears it will make it easier......?

    reading tab solos is alittle hard because the numbers are usually all jammed in that with p's and h's thrown in.
