                        "Bensusan" by Michael Hedges.
                  Windham Hill recording- Aerial Boundaries

			Transcribed by Michael Gunter.

Most of the credit for this transcription should go to David Morse
, whose transcription set me on the right track.
I saw a bunch of little problems so I decided to redo it a bit. I know
it's not yet perfect, but hey -- Michael Hedges is too much a god for
us mortals to ever aspire to copy.

One thing I'd really like to know if someone out there does: How does he
get such explosive harmonics (measures 4, 12, 16, etc...)?

Any glaring problems? I'm at .

P.S. I've seen Jeff Lo's partial transcription of "Ragamuffin". I've tried
      to finish it, but I can't. Help!!


Tuning: CGDGAC, capo III
4/4 time, except in measures 18 and 21 (3/4).

| = The quarter note beats.
. = Eighths between beats.
Let notes ring throughout, especially where indicated by ====.
