Artist: A Wilhelm Scream
Song: William Blake Overdrive
01/17/2005
Contact: thestart_has_you@peoplepc.com

As in all of A Wilhelm Scream's songs, both guitars play
technical riffs at the same time. I have the more easily-
heard guitar tabbed here, while the second one usually will
not be tabbed, but if you move the riff down a few steps, it
should be close,if not exactly what the second guitar plays.

Tuning:
Guitar A = DADGB(Db)
Guitar B = DADGBe
I tune the high e string down 1.5 step for use on
Riff #1, Guitar A, and near the end of the song.  There
are probably better ways to play the part, but I don't
have time to figure them out.  It just makes it easier.
