                             BRAINIAC - Chevelle
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: inflamedpersona
Email: inflamedpersona@yahoo.com

Tuning: Drop B (low to high B, F#, B, E, G#, C#)

Listen to the song for strumming patterns.  Pete plays the intro moderately 
fast; about twelve strums for that first chord.

Intro
C#|----------------------------------------|----------------|
G#|----------------------------------------|----------------|
E |-14---10\9---5/14---10\9---5/14---10\9--|-7-9-10---9-----|

F#|-12----8\7---3/12----8\7---3/12----8\7--|-5-7--8---7-----|
B |----------------------------------------|----------------|

Note that the A5 chord played before sliding back up to 14 is very subtle.
In the song, you can barely make it out.

No guitar for the first half of verse.

In second half of the verse, play the first part of the intro, then play:
