Thanks Parapunter,

That's brilliant. I seem to remember you helped me out back in July of last year when I wanted the chords to Viva La Diva.

How do you do it ? Are you a professional musician ?

Clint. :ok::ok:

Tee hee! I wish!! I just know where the tabs are kept. On a happier note, one is just about to acquire a new guitar. A 2008 usa standard strat. In Sunburst no less. Two strats punter they call him...

Wow!!

Lucky man.

All I have is a poor mans Strat. A red Squier Strat made in Japan.

Next weapon of choice is my Hofner Galaxy, sunburst.

Clint.
