Rumors of my Demise have been Greatly Exaggerated - Rise Against

Tabbed by: Elliot Lamb

Tuning: Eb Standard

Intro, also played between 1st chorus and 2nd verse

  |   Gb|6-6--4/6-4---------------------------------------------|

<    After playing the line above twice, guitar 2 plays this (I 
  |   tried to line  everything up):
  |
  |   eb|---{Lead}----------------------------------------------|

  |   Ab|11---7-----9---11-12-11----7---9-----------------------|
  |   Eb|-------------------------------------------------------|

    This next riff is very similar to the intro, but without the
    octaves above it.
Verse
     Not completely sure on the repetition and strumming, listen
     to the song and it should make more sense.

     "So please, don't ask me how..."

It sounds like the pitch actually drops here, but that would mean
detuning to Bb standard, which just doesn’t seem right for where
the rest of the song is played.  They could possibly bust out a 
baritone or a 7 string for just this song, but I highly doubt it.
Most likely, they just let the bass play the root note in the 5th.


The next part of the bridge is simply the above part, but continue
To strum the chords instead of cutting it off for a rest.

i think that the song could be played in drop Db and that could fix the problem. try playing it like this

that might not be completley right but you could use the open chord i think that it fits nicely. i like ur tabs and i think that it sounds nice. but i think that the song sounds better and is easier to play in drop Db.

Wow, this is a good tab.

The song is DEFINITELY in drop D, and thats why I thought tab 2 is right, until you pointed out the bridge, and in tab 2 it takes those low notes an octave higher, when they are in fact played like how dirtracer says above.

In conclusion, this song is played one step down in Drop D (you might want to adjust the tab to that)

Your tab is the only one with the 2nd guitar part, gj :P
