(A Maj)                   (D Min)        (Eb Maj)           (D Min)
I climb the stage again tonight, and the place seems still alive

=======================================================================
Here 10/11      means slide from 10 to 11
     10/(12)    means play 10 and bend a whole step to 12
     10/(12)\10 means play 10, bend a whole step up, then release bend
	        to come back down
     (22)\20    means pre-bend to 22, play, then release to 20

Vertical lines are not bar lines, but only divide things up logically
