  • Changed the vocal tracks from the horrific sawtooth to baritone sax and bassoon. Also I fixed the bass drum at m.184. In addition, I put the drums to max volume to suit the mixing of the song better

  • Fixed drums according to the Master track. Some minor tweaks were made (like hi-hats missing over the double-bass in chorus), and the bass drum rhythms were fixed. The couple of weird bass drum hits are written that way because Lars either miss-hit, or intentionally played a Bass flam.

  • Changed Vocals track instrument back to what it was before. Not enough volume using the 'Violin' instrument.

  • Removed the extra 8th-note that was at the end of Measure 200, so now the guitar parts in the 4 measures before it line up properly with the drums.

    Cleaned up the vocal tracks, and added lyrics as well (hopefully they line up, I'm never 100% confident in lining it up).

    Fixed the volume on parts of the drums that were missed in previous revisions.

    Also changed note length of notes that were marked 'Staccato' in GuitarPro/TuxGuitar so that they now play as staccato in Songsterr (since the Staccato mark doesn't translate into Songsterr).

  • Drums fixed according to the book. Should sound better (mainly bass drum rhythms).

    All time signatures and tempos fixed and fine-tuned.
    May 11, 2014 by Maian
  • The timing on the final Verse and Chorus are corrected. Previously weren't re-adjusted after the tempo change (they were double speed).
    Apr 14, 2014 by Maian
  • Corrected a few measures on the drums leading up to the solo.
    Apr 14, 2014 by Maian
  • Re-transcribed the song. Tempos are more correct now (not sure if perfect, but not half-time tempos). Combined the previously-separated Lead Guitar and Lead Solos parts.

    Cleaned up some drums, as well as made them readable.

    Renamed the tracks to the (hopefully) correct names. Any other corrections needed should be a whole lot easier with the more normal-looking tempo.

  • Fixed main mistakes, fixed chorus, verse, solo, and intro
