Song: Cry of The Banshee
Artist: Brocas Helm
Album: Defender of The Crown

Transcribed by Colton Wood
Email: ColtonWoed@aol.com

I tabbed this cause I like this song. As simple as that. And I like tapping 
and this song is basically 80% tapping so I decided I would give it a try. 
And since there really isn't any Verse/Chorus separation, I just separated 
the parts in Intro part A, Intro part B, Intro part C, Verse 1, Interlude, 
Verse 2, Bridge, [Solo part A, Solo part B, Solo part C, Solo part D], 
Verse 3, Outro. Once again, good luck guys. Oh and this tab is 100% accurate 
guaranteed.

[The solo is complicated so I separated it for your convenience]

Oh and I don't think I did good on the lyrics, so don't count it against me.

BIG UPDATE! (1/8/11)
- Feeling like a total idiot about a year after I tabbed this, I realized 
there is no guitar 2... So I re-did this whole tab to remove the second 
guitar. Sorry it took me so long TO REALIZE guys.
- Added the missing part of the solo at about 2:20, the tab is now 100% 
complete.

Legend:
T | Tap note
h | Hammer on to
p | Pull off to
/ | Slide up to
\ | Slide down to
. | Palm mute
~ | Held note
b | Bend to
r | Release bend

We know your brave, youve come to see us dream

To a world so flaming bright, a world youve never seen
         G5               F5
Can you hear the Banshee scream

Verse 2:
Same format as the first Verse.

     G5
You know that silence
     F5
Is not our middle name
            G5         F5
Can you recognize the game
D#5            D5
Step into the gate and
D#5                D5
Grasp the hand of fate
        G5               F5
Its a time machine, a devils dream
    G5               F5
And yet its in your grasp
  D#5          D5
Legends of the past
         D#5              D5
Can you hear the Banshee scream
  G5
Banshee howling in the city
 F5
Means a knight has died
           G5              F5
For what reason, for what glory
     D#5            D5
Who knows for what pride
 D#5            D5        
Country king or criminal
G5                 F5      
War or vengeance, what the Hell?
G5               F5
Death is all the same
      D#5               D5
If he died in shame or Honor
D#5              D5
Who on Earth can tell?
