                             THE SERPENTINE OFFERING - Dimmu Borgir
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning:There is a bit of discrepancy of whether or not this is in C standard or D
standard. For this tab, however, I am in D STANDARD. 






  All of those 3's and 2's and 10's are randomly represented below. Those are the correct
notes, but not the correct value of each note. Just listen to the song.

         Repeat that twice.

  Repeat that until told otherwise.

Enters guitar 2, octave above.

D|-3/6\3/6\3/6-2-2-3---------------------------------------------------------|

Stop once Shagrath starts singing again.


This is the part that makes me wonder if Dimmu Borgir changed tunings between cds. 

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-7--------7----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-7------5-7-10-9-7-------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-5----7-3-5-8--7-5------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------5--------------------------------------------------------------------|
heavy pm. . . .  . . 

  Play that twice.

  After that, Play those top couple bars as you hear them being played.

Clear singing part:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-7-----------------2-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-7-----------------2-------------------------------------------------------|
E|-5-----------------0-------------------------------------------------------|    

Play that until you hear chord changes, which are:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-3---------7--------3----------------------------------------2-------------|
A|-3---------7--------3----------------------------------------2-------------|
E|-1---------5--------1----------------------------------------0-------------|
 these aren't in proper order, but it finishes on the D5 chord ^


Then it's this little doohickey then that slide riff some more.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----9-9-10--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----9-9----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--7-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Something like that.
Now end the song with
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|11111-1h4p1-11111-1h4h1-00000-0h3p0----------------------------------------|
  .....       .....       .....
Hit the string hard on that first 1. Repeat until you feel good about yourself, then the
last to notes are palm mute D5.

D-Standard is DGCFAd, not DGEFCd. You should fix that. You wrote the tab correctly though! If it was possible.. 4.5*. But I say 5*.

I want to post or [tab]
