TRANSCRIBED BY : ANDERS BJORLER / AT THE GATES July 2000
NOTES : Well, i'm not too familiar writing tabs, but I'll give it a shot.
	There are no exact bars that measure time, but my advice is:
	Listen to the song and try to figure it out with the help from these tabs.
	If you have any q's, please e-mail them to me (dahaunted@hotmail.com)

TUNING: B (every string down 2.5 steps)

RIFF 1 (intro) play four times

/// Well, the intro riff starts off with violin on the album,
but we never played it live, so i would
suggest you play the intro riff 4 times instead.
There are 4 guitars on this part.
Guitar 1,2 and 3 play all four times,
Guitar 4 just plays 3:rd and 4:th time.
If you're planning to do this song live, let the bass play what guitar 3 is 
doing.
Then play guitar 1+2 the first two times, then change to guitar 1+4 the last 
two ///

Haha, excellent.
Can't get much better a tab than if it's done by the person who created the tune.

I want to post or [tab]
