Dream Theater - Endless Sacrifice
from the 2003 album Train Of Thought

Transcribed by Travis Lausch

Notes: this is one of my favourite Dream Theater songs now. This song is
pretty easy until the middle, then it's solo city! Well, if you have 
anything to say or add (i.e., solos!), just email me at the address above.
Tune all guitars down one full step (D G C F A D)

the song can be played in drop d and to make it easier to get the harmonic in the chorus if your tuned to D standard then instead of using the 7th fret E you could use the 5th fret B. Great tab dude

Good tab, but I think it's a waste of time tuning all the strings down when all you need to do is tune the bottom one down to get the desired notes. It's hard to tune each string to the right pitch (if you actually tune correctly) over again just for one song
