                            Cruel Melody - Black Light Burns

Tabbed by: Stephen McFall
Email:smboo28@aim.com

Tuning: Drop D low to high (D,A,D,G,B,e)

This song can be played In 1 & ½ steps down Drop D (B,F#,B,E,G#,C#) tuning with a capo
the 3rd fret if you want to play it this way simply play the song the exact same with
making this numbers in relation to the capo. Note: BLB usually does this for the 
guitar when playing live. Also the Acoustic guitar could be tuned to standard tuning except
the bottom string wouldn’t be truly correct during the bridge when they strike open 
but that’s so minor I really doubt anyone would ever notice.

Intro Riff Gtr. 2 (Clean w/ Echo) Turn up volume knob while playing this
E|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|------------------------|
D|-h10p7-h10p7-h10p7-h10p7| 
A|------------------------|
D|------------------------|

Verse Riff Gtr. 2 (Clean w/ Echo) play 12x for Pre-Verse then play 8x for 1st Verse
This is exactly how Annis plays it live
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------10--12-10-------------------------------------------------|
A|-----12-------12-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|-0-0----0-0-3--------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus Gtr. 1 (Acoustic) play 2x This is exactly how Borland plays it live
e|-1-0-2-4-3----------------|
B|-1-1-3-4-3----------------|
G|-2-2-2-5-4----------------|
D|-3-2-0-6-5----------------|
A|-3-0-0-6-5----------------|
D|-3---0-6-5----------------|

Chorus Gtr. 2 (Clean w/ Echo) play 2x
e|x---x--x--x---x--x--|

D|x---x--x--10~-10-9~~|
A|x---x--x--x---x--x--|
D|x---x--x--x---x--x--|

Then Break that is just Bass and effects

Then 2nd Verse equals Verse riff 8x

Then play through Chorus again

Bridge Pt. 1 Gtr. 1 (Acoustic) play 8x This is 100% correct and the highest note on the
Chord is played on the fret (so it doesn’t come out much)
