Wow dudes!

I've finished my second tab.
This is an instrumental piece that first occurs on 'One Size Fits All', 1975.
Then there are a few live recordings, including 'Zappa in New York' and
'The Best Band You Never Heard in Your Life'.

The song is mostly played on saxophone. I've transcribed it all to playable
six string guitar. Including the 'bass fills' which I just pitched up one octave.
There's a part played in canon which was a mess to tab. The 'outro solo' was
also darn hard and these may not be perfect. I've tried to make this tab really
accurate and it sounds very good along with bass, drums and rythm guitar.

Please send me an e-m@il if you like this tab or if you discover any errors.


Enjoy!
