Title: Once Upon Your Dead Body
Artist: Coheed & Cambria
Album: Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, Volume 1: From Fear Through
 The Eyes of Madness

Copyright © Columbia Records 2005
Verion 1.0 - 09/04/2005 - Original Tab

Tabbed by: Chris Frazier (cdf0103@mail.ecu.edu)

This track reminds me a lot of 80's new wave, which is some bold
territory for Coheed and Cambria to venture into. This is a really
easy song for the most part. The only part I'm unsure about is
Phase III (Guitar II). It's very hard to make out what's going on
here because the guitars aren't panned hard to the right or left
but kept at a very close to mono mix, which makes it hard to pick
out one guitar from the other. If anyone has some better ideas
for it, my e-mail is below, please send them to me and you'll be
sure to get credit.

If anybody has any question, comments, or corrections PLEASE send them to
me at cdf0103@mail.ecu.edu and you'll be sure to get FULL CREDIT for
anything you submit to me.
