    I play that song and I love playing it. Not an easy tune to do though. I fudge it a little when playing but it sounds like the song. I like that band... it's a shame they didn't get any bigger after that song and album. Frank Hannon is an underated guitar player!

    Well, I'm glad someone caught onto my user name. I used that name because the night I registered here on the Links the X-mas show w/ Heat miser was on. Pretty smart of you guys.......

    Shit dude, first you're going to have to tell me which of the 3 guitar parts your playing in the intro. I play what I believe to be the closest thing you can get to the sound of the intro without using 3 guitars. I've never really written down the tab or anything, but I do remember it was a bitch to figure out.

    Hey JMJ, friends can disagree, but I'm pretty sure I hear more than one guitar part in the intro. If you can refer me to some evidence to the contrary, I would appreciate it. I don't like to be wrong about stuff. Let me know if you got any tab I can work with to learn the fingering, but I still stand by my assertion that it's more than one guitar.

    Just listened to the tune.

    More than one guitar......but it sounds like they're all playing the same part.......maybe just a little bit of a variance here or there. I think there is one main guitar, while the others are mixed lower and are only noticable to guitar players and folks who listen for shit like that.

    Kinda reminds me of "Neworld"

    lemme find the page of the tab that i play. i don't know what the studio version sounds like, i don't have it. i have the version from the recent live album they put out

    i saw em at the HOB and the guitarist did it by himself, so there's a way to do it with one dude if you have the fingering down right
