			    When Skeletons Live - Coheed and Cambria
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By : fender4string

Tuning: I believe the tuning for this song is actually half step down, drop D
but I cut corners and simply tuned down E to Db (D flat).  The fingering works
out to be pretty easy and it saves you effort on tuning down your whole instrument.
To tune the E string to Db simply tune so that 5 on your E string matches 4 on your
D string (or any two notes that are located in comparable places such as these;
the notes don't matter, just the interval you tune to). Obviously the 5 on E string
note will be an octave deeper than the 4 on D.


Intro (the x's are ghost notes before the indicated note. I.e. the x3 doesn't
 mean mute the 3 on Db it means mute the pluck before the 3 on Db)
