                             HIGHLAND'S APPARITION - Chevelle
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: inflamedpersona

The track on the CD is about halfway between Drop C and Drop D down 1/2 step (based on 
electric tuner),
so either version will sound a little off when played along with the song.  My guess is
it's meant to be a little closer to Drop D down 1/2 step.

This is the acoustic song off Chevelle's newest album, Sci-Fi Crimes.  It's a great song
which showcases what I feel is an underrated part of Chevelle's repertoire, and is 
enough to learn in minutes.

Listen to the song for the exact timing for the strumming; it's too much work to tab it 
precisely.

Wow. In a recent interview Pete said that the band wanted a natural sound and wasn't stressing perfect tunings...
I guess he was being completely honest...
Good tab!

So I've gotten this down along with Sleep Apnea. If only The Clincher weren't so low, I could tackle that too :( This just proves how a hard rock band like Chevelle has a wondrous soft side to their music. Beautiful song. Thanks for this tab, you did an excellent job.
