THE SIGN OF THE CROSS
FROM: THE X FACTOR
TABBED BY: STUART ROBB (DREAMER DECEIVER)
Heres my effort at this epic tune - there are several pieces still missing, but
there is quite a bit here (the track is 11:17 long !!).
The whole song is based around the E chord, at different positions.
Any help and additions would be welcome - this was knocked up in just a few
hours (not including putting it onto the computer !!).
See my email address at the bottom........
