                          Cardiac Arrest - Bad Suns
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Asa Wentworth
Email me: asawentworth@yahoo.com

Tuning: Half-Step Down

The other tabs were kind of bugging me because there were parts left out and they 
weren't fully tabbed in the right tuning, so i decided to tab my own version. 
Having said that, this tab deserves a lot of credit for tabbing out some of the parts already:
https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/bad_suns/cardiac_arrest_tab_1462400id_18022014date.htm

The rest I learned from ear and by watching them play it live.

Guitar 1 is played by Christo Bowman and is best heard in the left ear,
while Guitar 2 is played by Ray Libby and can be heard in the right ear.

In the live version he has some kind of effect on it.

Both guitars repeat until it fades out, and I believe they add in some other notes and improvise.

Hope this helps!
