One of my favorite riffs of all time. I have the solo
here too. Remember, I will take requests for songs
(if I like them), so if you have any tabs you want me
to write, just email me at the address at the top.

If you want to play the intro synth on the guitar,
check out s tab.

Just for fun, Ive put which guitar equals which of
Styxs guitarists plays that part. This is how it 
was at least when I saw them in concert.

Guitar 1= James Young
Guitar 2= Tommy Shaw
