"Sound of Pulling Heaven Down" by Blue October
(Transcription by AggiePhil--phil@phildorsett.com)
http://www.phildorsett.com/sounds.html


Notes:
• This is a pretty heavy song without an actual acoustic guitar part, but I play it on
anyway. This first tab is geared toward being played on an acoustic. However, if you have
electric guitar and want to play it on that, I have included a set of alternate "Power
Tabs" down at the bottom.

Intro ("It was a midnight...")
(Downdward strum)
• Use a distortion pedal if you have one
