 The Black Goddess Rises - Cradle of Filth

 Tune down one step (E to D and so on) and you're set. This is a really easy
 tune to grasp, so much so that you could get by playing the whole thing on
 one guitar... which is how I've tabbed it. If you want to play it 'the real
 way' though, just seperate the rhythm and lead riffs and play the single riff
 parts together. Email (as always) to Wither at brunor@sggs.wcape.school.za


  Riff 1:

  Riff 4: Unsure about this riff, but it's so atonal on the recording that
          nobody will really know if you're playing it wrong.

 |-1-00-1-00-1-00---------| Song structure:
  - Feedback and keyboards
  - Riff 1 x4
  - Riff 2 x1
  - Riff 3 x4 ignoring the bar labelled 1. until the fourth repetition
  - Riff 4 x1
  - Riff 5 x1
  - Riff 6a x2 with 6b played as a harmony the second time
  - Keyboard interlude
  - Riff 7 x2
  - Riff 8 x4 ignoring the bar marked 2. entirely
  - Riff 7 x2
  - Riff 8 x4 ignoring the bar marked 1. the fourth time and playing the bar
    marked 2. in its stead
  - Bass lead
  - Riff 9 x1
    Note: The solo is started over these bars and carries on for a while under
    the lyrics. I usually don't tab solos due to a preference for writing my
    own, but if anyone *really* wants it, mail me.
  - Riff 10 x10 with second half of solo over bars one to eight
  - Riff 6a x2 with 6b played as a harmony the second time
  - Bass interlude (slight variation of riff 1)
  - Riff 1 x4
  - Riff 2 x1
  - Riff 3 x4 ignoring the bar labelled 1. until the fourth repetition

 Okay, I apologise for the inadequacies of this transcription, but I found it
 really difficult to get passionate over transcribing a mono-guitar song (hey,
 I'm a Gemini through and through, okay? ;) Next up is either The Principle of
 Evil Made Flesh or Of Mist and Midnight Skies.
