LAGUNA SUNRISE (Black Sabbath)
 ==============

 -- comp. Black Sabbath [Tony Iommi!?], 1972 (from _Vol._4_)
   -- transcribed/tabbed for two guitars: tcg, '81, '89, '94
   -- 4/4 // keys: D, F/Dm, C // Andante (pretty slow)
   -- Sequence: A1-A2-B-A1-A1-A3 (note repeat signs & textual notes)
       [may wanna throw out an "A" or two--unless you got a string
       orchestra!--like Sabbath--to keep "building" interest....]
   -- chords & notes easy enough, but timing "hellacious," so had
       to resort to the dreaded w-h-q-e-s-t shorthand:
     w = whole note; h = half; q = quarter; e = eighth; s = sixteenth
     q. = dotted quarter (etc.); [q] = quarter rest (etc.)
     q-q = tied quarters (also, ===== another aid to duration)
     q3 q3 q3 = quarter triplets (etc.)

 FINAL NOTE: This is as close to the recording as I could get ten years or
   so ago--but I recall that, when playing it with a guitar buddy, the
   Asus4 & G5 chords seemed to clash a bit with the "lead" melody, since the
   pitch ranges are so damn close. So I substituted the following voicings
   at one point, and it worked out pretty well:

        G5         Asus2
       ______      ______
   VII |||1||  VII |||||1
       ||||2|      ||||||
       ||||||      |||2||
       |||||4      ||||3|        Now, about that string section....
