First, I love the simple structure of the song. It's set up to just let your imagination take you where you want it to go.

I hope you don't mind, I'm not trying to steal your song or anything like that; but I messed with it some and came out with something. ...You'll need to download powertab to see the tablature; but I've got a midi in the .zip file.

Powertab is free - you can just google it. But, maybe this will give you some idea on how you can expand on the song. Keep in mind this is just quick work, so it's nothing fancy. Good luck!

Should say that I'm editing because maybe you're looking for help on theory, or technique or .. whatever. I know my door's always open if you know something you want to learn. Though I will never claim to know as much or as little as I might.
