Artist: Coheed And Cambria
Song: Keeping The Blade
Album: Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV Vol. 1: From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness
This is the first song on their new record.  It's actually an orchestra instrumental track,
but it can be played on an acoustic guitar and still sound tasteful.

Standard Tuning(EADGBE)

Violin intro
E-----------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------|
G---6~-3-5~-(2x)--------------------|
D-----------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------|

Then the piano plays something, and the violin plays this under it.
Listen for timing.
E------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------|
G----6~--1--3~---6~--13--11--10~-8-6-|
D------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------|


Heres the bass part, just in case you want it.
This also goes along with the piano part.
Once again, listen for timing.
E-----------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------|
G-----------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------|
A----3~~----------3~~---------------|
E----------4~~-----------4~~--------|

Then it stops on this chord.
E-----------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------|
G-----3~~---------------------------|
D-----3~~---------------------------|
A-----------------------------------|

D-----------(4)----6-4--3~----------|
