Our Father - (Extreme III)

Solo not included.

The opening section is played with clean guitar and delay set at around
340 milliseconds.  (half of what you hear on the record is just slapback

There's a lot of slide guitar during the chorus which I've haven't bothered

I've tried to keep the lyrics in time with the music.  To keep from wasting
space where there's a lot of words but not much music happening, I put
the words in brackets.  When the brackets end, the next word is in time
with the tablature above it.

As usual, the layout of this is a mess.  I understand it but no-one
else probably will.  Tough :-)


M above note = palm-mute
a.h  = artificial harmonic
^ = hammer/pull
3(b)5 = bend 3rd fret to 5th

           (this part is more complicated when then singing starts.  It sounds
	   as though Nuno is playing the delayed part, so when it really gets
	   delayed, it sounds twice as complicated.  What's below is close
