Drop-D tuning down a whole-step


Comments: A monster of a tuning this. I recommend a set-neck guitar or a
through-body. String it with at least 11s otherwise the low E-string (now
C-string) will go out of tune in a second. Rhy. Figs 1a and 1b seem to be
backwards as are Riffs 2, 3a and 3b. They have been notated here as they
sound.

Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t    = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
(\)  = Dive w\bar
(/)  = Release w\bar
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum

Within

[Rhy. Fig 1a and Rhy. Fig 1b]
[Rhy. Fig 2]

Cry without tears
See without sight
Night without day 
And every day¥s black as the night

[Riff 1]
Fly without wings
Feel without touch
Touch without feel
And everywhere nothing is real
[Rhy. Fig 4]

[Rhy. Fig 3]
I wanna see from within
I wanna be where I¥ve been
I know a truth from a lie
I wanna live ¥fore I die

[Riff 2]
Life without death
World without end
Sleep without dreams
And nothing is quite what it seems

[Rhy. Fig 5a and Rhy. Fig 5b]
I want something
More than you¥ll know
Follow myself
And go where you never can go

[Rhy. Fig 4]
And I see though my eyes are closed

[Rhy. Fig 3]
I wanna see from within
I wanna be where I¥ve been
I know a truth from a lie
I wanna live ¥fore I die

[Riff 3a and Riff 3b]
Inside you without your blessing
Inside me is me confessing
Outside you is outside me
[Rhy. Fig 6]
And inside there is no guarantee, no

[Rhy. Fig 7]
[Rhy. Fig 8a and Rhy. Fig 8b]

[Rhy. Fig 9 with Riff 4] (2x)

[Rhy. Fig 3]
I wanna see from within
I wanna be where I¥ve been
I know a truth from a lie
I wanna live ¥fore I die

[Rhy. Fig 10 with Riff 5]
Cry without tears
Night without day

[Rhy. Fig 10 with Riff 6] (fade out)
