         As Dust Dances
               -
          Biffy Clyro

Tabbed by: Tom McPhee (tommcphee@gmail.com)

I've based the structure of this tab on this acoustic performance:

Drop D tuning (DADGBE)

                D

D|----------0-0-0-0-0-0-0----------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------------|

      Theres a man on the corner   Selling dozens of bones
                            
                Bm7                                 (on last time)

A|-0---2---2-2-2-2-2-2-2-0---2---2-2-2-2-2-2-2-0-a-|---2222222---|
D|-----------------------------------------------t-|-------------|

           Every kind of bone    Except the one that I want.

Everything what your eyes do, you're trying to sleep
But where your tongue rests, is it against your teeth.

Chorus 
-------
(let chords ring)

        Em                   D                    Am

B|------8--------------------7-----------------------------------|
G|------9--------------------7--------------------7--------------|
D|------9--------------------7--------------------5--------------|
A|------7--------------------5--------------------5--------------|
D|------------------------------------------------5--------------|

   And now, it's bigger than us. Its bigger than everything

        Em                   D
e|------7--------------------5-----------------------------------|
B|------8--------------------7-----------------------------------|
G|------9--------------------7-----------------------------------|
D|------9--------------------7-----------------------------------|
A|------7--------------------5-----------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------|

        It decides to touch.

Verse
-----

Asleep is the safest
place you could be
You can try hard to catch it
It just catches you
Imagine a camera
Coming up from your feet
Relax all your muscles son
Just hope your heart's in one piece

Chorus 
------

(strum all chords)

And now, it's bigger than us.
It's bigger than everything, it decides to touch. 

Post-chorus

                 Bm          C                    A

   Bigger than a halo       a devil               an angel

       Save for a shinbone or   even         a hand


Verse
------
(sounds the same as the intro, but its more chord based - strum
 all the chords, or vary the Bm7 by picking an arpeggio)

It's bigger than everything, it decides to touch.

Awesome tab, and a beaut of a song.
Just one suggestion i have,

e|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|------------------------|
D|--7-9---0-0---0---0---0-|
A|------9---9---9---9---9-|
D|----------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|

looks like he is playing the A for in intro riff instead of the G.

Otherwise, pretty ace :)

Mon the biff!!

I know, plus it would make the "its a lonely ride.." part start on the wrong note, think the original must be right. Tho the "bones got the wrong detail part isnt quite correct. Good job tho.
