Butterfly - ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION
Tabbed by TOSHIRO

Standard Tuning

(0:00)
Intro - I'll show you the frets, you figure out the rhythm. (this is palm muted)
|--------------------|
|--------------------|
|--------------------|
|-12---14---9---10---|
|-8----10---7---7----|
|--------------------|

(0:14)
Lead comes in (with delay)
|----------7--------------------|
|-------8--------------8--------|
|-9--7-----------9--7-----7-----|
|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|

(0:28)
More lead (harmonics)
|-[5]----------|
|------[5]-----|
|--------------|
|--------------|
|--------------|
|--------------|

(0:56)
Heavy Part - Rhythm guitar - Again, I'll only write the chords once.
You figure out the rhythms.  It's a waste of time to write out every single one.
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-3--5--7--10-----------------------------|
|-3--5--7--10-----------------------------|
|-1--3--5--8------------------------------|
The 5-7-7 chord is longer and the 8-10-10 chord is a short ending to the previous.

(0:56)
Heavy Part - Lead guitar (plays together with rhythm)
|----------------------------------|
|----------------------------------|
|-9--7--12--4--5-4-9--7--12--7--9--|
|----------------------------------|
|-7--5--10--2--3-2-7--5--10--5--7--|
|----------------------------------|

(1:10)
2nd Verse
Play the beginning palm muted section along with the [5] harmonics section again.
At the end of this section, slowly release the muting on the chords.

(1:38)
2nd Heavy Part (this part was hard, may not be correct)
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|-------4--2--------7-----|
|-3--2--5--2--3--2--7--5--|
|-3--3--2--0--3--3--5--5--|
|-1--0--------1--0-----3--|

(1:38)
2nd Heavy Part - Lead guitar (I can barely hear this part so don't be surprised if it's 
wrong, sounds nice though)
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------|
|-5--4--9-----13--9--5-4-----5--4--9-----5--4--9-----|
|----------------------------------------------------|
|-3--2--7-----11--7--3-2-----3--2--7-----3--2--7-----|
|----------------------------------------------------|

(2:06)
2nd Heavy Part - Part 2 (this plays over and over till the songs turns soft again)
|--------------|
|--------------|
|--------------|
|-3--5--7--10--|
|-3--5--7--10--|
|-1--3--5--8---|

(2:06)
2nd Heavy Part - Part 2 - Lead (this sounds strange but I'm sure it's how it goes)
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|-7b9r7------7b9r7------7b9r7--|
|-------6--6-------7--7--------|
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
Those are bends and releases.  Repeat this until it changes.

(2:20)
|---------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------|
|-9--7--12--16--17--16--9--7--12--7--9--|
|---------------------------------------|
|-7--5--10--14--15--14--7--5--10--5--7--|
|---------------------------------------|

(2:34)
Then it changes soft again with the palm mutings and the [5] harmonics.
It just has a different rhythm.

(2:48)
Then the muting rhythm stays and the lead changes to the riff with delays.
It ends with this riff.
|------------------------|
|------------------------|
|------------------------|
|-7-7--7-7--7-7--7-7--5--|
|-7-7--7-7--7-7--7-7--5--|
|-5-5--5-5--5-5--5-5--3--|

(lead)
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|-14-14--14-14--14-14--14-14--17--|
|---------------------------------|
|-12-12--12-12--12-12--12-12--15--|
|---------------------------------|

(3:02)
After this, play the Heavy Part - Part 1 again. It's the part I was unsure about the right notes.

(3:30)
Continue into Heavy Part - Part 2
Part of this plays differently.  When you hear this, play these lead riffs in order.
(3:44)
|--------------------|
|--------------------|
|-9--7--12--4--5--4--|
|--------------------|
|-7--5--10--2--3--2--|
|--------------------|

|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|-7b9r7------7b9r7------7b9r7--|
|-------6--6-------7--7--------|
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|

(3:58)
Then it continues back into this part.

|---------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------|
|-9--7--12--16--17--16--9--7--12--7--9--|
|---------------------------------------|
|-7--5--10--14--15--14--7--5--10--5--7--|
|---------------------------------------|

(4:12)
Here's the end! Yay!  It's pretty easy.
Use these chords again, just a different rhythm.
|--------------|
|--------------|
|--------------|
|-3--5--7--10--|
|-3--5--7--10--|
|-1--3--5--8---|

Lead
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|-13-13-13-13--12--10--9--7--9-9--|
|---------------------------------|
|-11-11-11-11--10--8---7--5--7-7--|
|---------------------------------|

So there you go.  Just figure out all the rhythms (I really didn't want to spend hours 
each chord 10 times) and you're good to go!  Please tell me if that one part is wrong and 
me a better way to play it!  I would appreciate it.

HI, AND THANKS AGAIN FOR TABBING THIS SONG!! =)
I give it 5*, sounds good I think, but as I said, I'm still kinda newbie so I might be wrong =P .

I would like to add a couple of things:

1- I know it would be loco to add all the chords, the tab is understandable, but if you could add maybe a tag timer? like for example -> "(3:02) After this, play the Heavy Part" So you know what part of the song is playing what time in the song :P

2- I mention the thing above because for example, the part that goes
|--------------|
|--------------|
|--------------|
|-3--5--7--10--|
|-3--5--7--10--|
|-1--3--5--8---|

I don't really hear it anywhere, soo I'm kinda confused where to play it, and How to play it?¿?¿, a little help there? =)

But aside from that which I guess it's my fault, sounds good to me, sooo, thanks really, I appreciate it so much =)

oh yeah, one little extra doubt, amm, how do I make the Harmonics effect? I don't have real stomps but I've got Amplitube, and I use "Harmonator" there, by it self I don't get the high pitched "[5]fret", but it has some options like "MIX" and "Level", in which it has options like "Key scale" and "voice" and that goes from "C mjr" to "B Loc" etc etc, the thing is I try to move everything but I don't really get that high pitched "[5]fret", so any help would be appreciated =)
