THE THING THAT SHOULD NOT BE

From: bprenike@socs.uts.EDU.AU (Brett Phillip Renike)

This is my version of The Thing That Should Not Be.
It's all from memory, so some of it may be wrong.
There is a fill (Riff 9) near the end of the song which I can't remember
how it goes, so if someone could tab it, I'd really appreciate it.
