!!NOTES!!
Yes, I have finally gotten around to transcribing "Cicada."  This tab
is pretty accurate for the most part but I can't promise it is all
exactly correct.  One look at this and you'll realize why I hesitated in
transcribing it!  However, don't be intimated by the length of the song
(though this is silverchair's most difficult tune)!
It's all a matter of learning the riffs and figuring out the order...
the best way to do this is to play along with the CD over and over and
over...good luck!  

This one's for Matt!
