                          Cloudkicker - States
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Artist: Cloudkicker
Album: The discovery
Song: States

Tuning: Drop B
B, F#, B, E, G#, C#

DISCLAIMER: I did NOT write the song! All credit goes to Ben sharp. (AKA Cloudkicker) I
just wrote this tab, so people could learn this epic song.


This song is very awesome and fun to play, so I thought I would make a tab since nobody
else had done it, but keep in mind that I don't know much about time signatures and all
that and the song is in like 15/4 so the bars does not really indicate the beat, they
show more change of the riffs and melodies, for example in the intro when it goes from D#
to B.



A:
   D# first time around
C#|-----------------------------------|
G#|-----------------------------------|
E |-----------------------------------|
B |-----4-----4---4-----4-----4-----4-|
F#|-----------------------------------|
B |-0-4---4-4---4---4-4---4-4---4-4---|

   B first time around
C#|---------------------------------------|
G#|---------------------------------------|
E |---------------------------------------|
B |-----4---4-----4-----4---4-----4-----4-|
F#|---------------------------------------|
B |-0-0---0---0-0---0-0---0---0-0---0-0---|

   D# second time around
C#|---------------------------------------|
G#|---------------------------------------|
E |---------------------------------------|
B |-----4-----4---4-----4-----4---4-----4-|
F#|---------------------------------------|
B |-0-4---4-4---4---4-4---4-4---4---4-4---|

   B second time around
C#|---------------------------------------||
G#|---------------------------------------||
E |---------------------------------------||
B |-----4-----4-----4---4-----4-----4---4-||
F#|---------------------------------------||
B |-0-0---0-0---0-0---0---0-0---0-0---0---||


Then another guitar plays this over the riff:
C#|---------------------------------------|
G#|---------------------------------------|
E |---------------------------------------|
B |-----7---7-----7-----7---7-----7-----7-|
F#|---------------------------------------|
B |-0-0---0---0-0---0-0---0---0-0---0-0---|

C#|---------------------------------------|
G#|---------------------------------------|
E |---------------------------------------|
B |-----7-----7---7-----7-----7---7-----7-|
F#|---------------------------------------|
B |-0-4---4-4---4---4-4---4-4---4---4-4---|

C#|---------------------------------------|
G#|---------------------------------------|
E |---------------------------------------|
B |-----7-----7-----7---7-----7-----7---7-|
F#|---------------------------------------|
B |-0-0---0-0---0-0---0---0-0---0-0---0---|

C#|-----------------------------------||
G#|-----------------------------------||
E |-----------------------------------||
B |-----7-----7---7-----7-----7-----7-||
F#|-----------------------------------||
B |-0-4---4-4---4---4-4---4-4---4-4---||


B:
(Play this a lot of times
C#|--------------------||
G#|--------------------||
E |--------------------||
B |-0---7----0-0---7-7-||
F#|-0---4----0-0---4-4-||
B |-0---4----0-0---4-4-||


C:
C#|----------------------------------------------------|
G#|----------------------------------------------------|
E |--------(2)---------(2)---------(2)-------------(2)-|
B |---------4-----------4-----------4---------------4--|
F#|-----0-----------0-----------0--------------0-------|
B |-0-----------0-----------0----------0---0-----------|

C#|----------------------------------------------------|
G#|----------------------------------------------------|
E |-------(2)----------(2)-------------(2)---------(2)-|
B |--------4------------4---------------4-----------4--|
F#|-----0-----------0---------------0-----------0------|
B |-4-----------4-----------4---4-----------4----------|

C#|----------------------------------------------------|
G#|----------------------------------------------------|
E |--------(2)-------------(2)---------(2)---------(2)-|
B |---------4---------------4-----------4-----------4--|
F#|-----0---------------0-----------0-----------0------|
B |-0-----------0---0-----------0-----------0----------|

C#|--------------------------------------------||
G#|--------------------------------------------||
E |------------(2)---------(2)---------(2)-----||
B |-------------4-----------4-----------4------||
F#|---------0-----------0-----------0----------||
B |-0---4-----------4-----------4-----------4--||


Then a mix of A and C comes that goes like this:
C#|----------------------------------------|
G#|----------------------------------------|
E |----------------------------------------|
B |-------4--------4--------4-----------4--|
F#|----------------------------------------|
B |-0--0-----0--0-----0--0-----0--0--0-----|

C#|----------------------------------------|
G#|----------------------------------------|
E |----------------------------------------|
B |-------4--------4-----------4--------4--|
F#|----------------------------------------|
B |-4--4-----4--4-----4--4--4-----4--4-----|

C#|----------------------------------------|
G#|----------------------------------------|
E |----------------------------------------|
B |-------4-----------4--------4--------4--|
F#|----------------------------------------|
B |-0--0-----0--0--0-----0--0-----0--0-----|

C#|----------------------------------||
G#|----------------------------------||
E |----------------------------------||
B |----------4--------4--------4-----||
F#|----------------------------------||
B |-0--4--4-----4--4-----4--4-----4--||


Then the B part plays


Then comes a variation of the A part with a filter

When it kicks back in
C#|---------------------------------------------------------|
G#|---------------------------------------------------------|
E |---------------------------------------------------------|
B |-------4--------4---4--------4---4--------4--------4---4-|
F#|---------------------------------------------------------|
B |-0--4------0-0----0-----0-0----0-----0-0------0-0----0---|

C#|-------------------------------------------------------|
G#|-------------------------------------------------------|
E |-------------------------------------------------------|
B |------4---4--------4-------4---4--------4---4-------4--|
F#|-------------------------------------------------------|
B |-0-0----0-----0-0-----0-0----0-----0-0----0----0-0-----|

C#|-------------------------||
G#|-------------------------||
E |-------------------------||
B |------4---4-------4---4--||
F#|-------------------------||
B |-0-0----0----0-0----0----||

Fade out

And that's pretty much it, there is probably some minor flaws but I tried my best. 
Enjoy! If you have any questions then email me at Hyks97@hotmail.com
