Are You Gonna Go My Way - This piece has been updated as follows (all bar numbers refer to notation in the initial release of the book to allow you to easily update the notation yourself):
[1] An additional bar has been added after bar 22, containing a semibreve chord tied from the previous bar. The 'To Coda' has been removed from bar 20 and added at the end of this new bar.
[2] Bars 27 (Coda) to 29 removed and the Coda symbol now appears above the start of bar 30.
[3] In bars 30 and 32, the tablature entries for beat 3 have been changed to 'X' noteheads to reflect the notation in the stave above.
[4] Bars numbers have been updated and the walkthrough edited to account account for these changes. (Updated 14 May 2019)
