             Desperate Times Desperate Measures - Under0ath
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tucker Yates
Email: guitaristtuck@aim.com

Tuning: Drop D (D-A-D-G-B-E)


-Thanks to Nick Desmond for correcting the 2nd guitar part in the 2nd part of the 
His tab of this section is much more accurate than mine was!


Notes:
Hopefully I'll get this out before the new album, so anyone who notices that this is an 
song and wants to know how to play it will be able to do so. A couple of things to consider:

In the intro, i'm not sure about the muted chords. They could be either D, D#, or E, but 
sounded like D# to me. You choose for yourself.

The # marks in the bridge don't represent sharps, they represent random feedback.

The 4th Chord in the second part of the bridge may be an A, not an A#.


That's pretty much it. Underoath rocks and i hope i did their new song justice with this tab!

-then play this twice (don't change rythm for 1st guitar). 2nd guitar is very difficult 
get the right rythm on; it involves some combo tapping that's rather complicated.

Outro:

-sweet! That's the song! Give it some practice and a nice tone, and you may be able to 
it as well as they do... or maybe not quite that good.

-give me suggestions for improving the tab if you have any
