Performance notes:

This song is basically a long Petrucci masterpiece complete with everything
you'd expect from the artist. The solo is included, but most of it is wrong
(I'm sure of it) and the chromatic interlude is definitely wrong too. I
welcome anyone to change it and give me the right one. Just email me.
