Music by Frank Zappa (1940-1993)
========================================================================
Song:  Montana (6:36)
Album: Overnite Sensation (#17, 9/7/73)

These parts are based on the original version of Montana (no whipping
floss here!).  I've notated the intro and the other interesting melodies
of the tune but the highlight is the Interlude section.  While performed
vocally on the album, it (mostly) translates well to the guitar but is 
really fun to play, so try it!  As with any TAB there is no rhythmic 
notation so you HAVE to listen to the song to get it right.  Watch out 
for the groups of five in the last bar!
