  • I was wrong, I believe it should be right this time... hopefully (this has been my test song for lyrics).

  • If I understand how the lyrics translate to Songsterr (not the same as in TuxGuitar) then I believe they should be fixed and lined up correctly now.

  • Instrument Names fixed.

    Volume of Bass Drums and Toms fixed so you can hear them. Took out the ghost notes on snare that play full-volume on Songsterr.

  • Lyrics are fixed, and actually on the Vocals track rather than the Bass track.

    Drums are readable, and fixed. Fills should be correct.
