I've fallen to my knees

A fabricated disbelief
F#            F#(9)      C#        B         G#
Pull back the curtains take a look into your eyes

My tongue has now become a platform for your lies

Sounds good although I think it is easier to play the other F# like this:
x-x-4-6-x-6

instead of:
x-9-11-x-11-x

this way it's a lot easier to switch to the C#

Good tab thanks !
Personnaly don't find it hard to play it x-9-11-x-11-x, and sounds better to me not to play it on the higher string !

Hi!

I think your intro / verse tab may work for solo playing, but it sounds like the recorded guitar part is less complicated (?) with the bass guitar playing the root notes:


Intro/Verses:
G# F# F# C# B <-- Bass guitar play these notes
e|-------------------------|
B|-------------11----9---7-|
G|--5------3---------------|
D|-------------------------|
A|--2------1---9-----8---6-|
E|-------------------------| X2 (listen to song for rhythm)

I want to post or [tab]
