Author/Artist: A Perfect Circle
Title: The Package
Album: Thriteenth Step
Transcribed by: Andrew Biles

I got the album through this morning and this is the first track off it.  It's a
great album, seems to be concentrated quite a lot on the softer side from what
I've heard of it though.

Anyway, you're all gonna say, no this songs in drop C tuning or whatever, but my
guitar was tuned to standard tuning so that's the way I've tabbed it out, cos
most of it worked.  If you want to be more accurate, the chorus part is played an
octave lower so the drop tuning will help and it'll be like fret 1 and open for
the two main chords.
Well here's the tab anyway.

 guitar 2 (4:26) harmonics  (4:55)                                           

The Harmonics are a little off due to the tuning.  The rest of the song is
basically above, I can't remember the order totally but I think it goes back
into the chorus part and then the intro and that's it.

any questions? andrewbiles@hotmail.com

this is a good tab, but you really need to tune down to get these low notes in the chorus, but otherwise it's cool
