Amon Amarth
"Amon Amarth" from the album: Once Sent from the Golden Halls

Transcribed by: Nick Beato (entity@netwide.net)

Tuning (High to Low): C G D# A# F C (Key of C#m down 2 steps)

I've tried to space the notes out right, but some parts are kinda weird.
If you aren't sure what i mean, listen to the cd. Also, some riffs have
lead ins that are at the end of a section, i transcribed them there!!!
(Part 3's 1st guitar is an example of this!)

Another valid point worth mentioning is the fact that gtr 1 is tremolo
picked EXTREMELY SLOW copared to most metal bands. it's more of 16th notes
so don't play it as fast as you can!

Part 1 (let all notes ring out)

C ------------------------------------------------------------------
G ---------------5---------------*----------------------------------
D#---6-----6-----------6-----4---4h6---4-----4-----4-----4----------
A#------------------------------------------------------------------
F -4-----4-----4-----4-----4---------5-----5-----5-----5-----5------
C ------------------------------------------------------------------

* don't pick the G#(C#) twice, let it ring and then hammer-on

Part 2

gtr 1 (slow trem pick, sounds oxymoronish)
C ------------------------------------------------------------------
G ------------------------------------------------------------------
D#---------6-------------------------------6---------------9--------
A#-6-------------6-9-------7-------6-------------6-9----------------

C ------------------------------------------------------------------
G ------------------------------------------------------------------

solo (rythem to Part 6 behind it)

That should be about it.  I'll add the solo later, it shouldn't be too hard
to 
figure out. It's off the C# Aeolian mode (if in standard tuning) and focuses 
around the C# at the 14th fret of the 2nd string.
