Freak Show Excess (ver2) Tab - Steve Vai






Freak show excess
Transcribbed by: Max La Menace

In the solo 2 the tremolo bar never go up (above your tuning) so sometimes, you have to
the tremolo bar down before playing the note and then you pick it and you go up with the
we will see it). I didn't write the big solo at the end because it isn't important for 
song ( he improvised I think so you can do what you want there!)
