Evanescense
Track number 4 form Fallen (2003)
Tabbed by: Mariano Arnaiz
Anything to: marianoarnaiz@hotmail.com

This, as everybody know is a great song, is not for guitar completly, and hell it´s hard
tab.
After a while and because new Evanescense album is coming out i disided to correct my
tab
and it had some pretty seriuos erros, after listening to the song a while i correct some things.
Remember as this is originany for piano, there are things that you will fell werid cause
piano
you can play the chords in many differnt ways, this is the closest to the real deal in
have
fun with it.

About how to play the song pick the chords down (from E to e), up (from e to G or D),
then
back down (from G or D to e), sometimes dont pick some of the middle strings (specially
A).
Listen to the piano closely cause this are the chords. Also all the D in the song can be
and
you can play with the changing of them (as the piano does).

I apologise for accusing you Marian. I was out of line, and should have kept my opinion to myself.
Hoewever, since then, I've noticed quite a big mistake in the playing of the intro/main riff. That same riff is not played through 4 times. I can hear a distinct difference during the 2nd and 4th playing of the riff. Therefore, I put it to you, and the other users of this tab, that in fact, when you hit the open A string, and the top E string on the 9th fret at the same time; during the 2nd and 4th times of playing the riff, you play the 7th fret of the E string instead.
Hope you can all make sense of that. I'd write it in tab form, but from what I've seen, it can sometimes get messed up.
