Crossroads Paganini Tab

Title: As many might know this is from the movie Crossroads with Steve Vai
Guitarist: Me, Ian Landeo AKA: Segovia wannabe 
Years playing: Techniquely 21 yrs, but never was serious until age 11 so maybe 15-17,  Am 26 yr old

 This is really geared for the guitarist who doesn't use a pic. After losing
my electric guitar in the pawn shop a while back I pretty much needed to transpose this
for it to sound decent on the nylon strings.

 I try to post this at other guitar site, but it was rejected. He said that he didn't want to spend the 
rest of the year answering email requests for more information and told me to post somewhere else or make my
own site. Maybe, they post here.

 I had planned on combining Paganini's 5th Caprice, as played by Eliot Fisk however,
I'm no prodigy and gave up for now. Working on Moto Perpetuo though; much easier.

 Sorry, for any mistakes in the .mp3 I get stage fright when recording.
 Also, I made the tab in Cakewalk Pro Audio I don't have TableEdit. I indicated Hammerons
 and pull offs with forward and backward slashes.  /  \

 The tablature is correct and exactly how I play it. Incomplete, but still good exercise. It will
stop traffic if you play this in a guitar shop while you're pretending to buy guitar, but just there to show off.

 Here is link to MP3 that I play on crappy guitar http://home.earthlink.net/~ianl/CrossroadsPaganini.mp3
