Date: April 16, 2005
(This tab is the transcriptionist's own work.)

Written by: A. Gurvitz
From the CD "Demolition"  (1980, Bronze Records)

The song is in 12/8 time. There is no timing indication in the tablature,
but in general, each tab staff has two measures of lead playing (except for
the bridge, which condenses eight measures onto one staff).
The song is in the key of D. Most of the lead guitar parts are in
D pentatonic minor.
The chords in the opening progression and verses are power fifths.
During lead guitar solo parts, rhythm guitar is playing a D(5)  C(5)
chord progression.
