Endless Sacrifice
Dream Theater - Endless Sacrifice
from the 2003 album Train Of Thought

Transcribed by Travis Lausch

Notes: this is one of my favourite Dream Theater songs now. This song is
pretty easy until the middle, then it's solo city! Well, if you have 
anything to say or add (i.e., solos!), just email me at the address above.
Tune all guitars down one full step (D G C F A D)
