                             Aliens - Atomship
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Atomshipped 
Email: nitsua@comcast.net

Tuning: Drop C (CGCFAD)

This is close if not exactly the way Aliens is played by Nathan Slade.
Enjoy the tab and email any questions and/or feedback to me.

Aliens is an amazing song but it can be tricky to play at first.
It's an odd beat but once you get the hang of it it's very fun to play.

Note: Distortion pedal helps a TON for this song! Trying to change settings 
between distorted and clean is very annoying when playing this song.

music once again under their original name 
Watership Down.
