The Hard Sell
Coheed and Cambria
The Afterman: Descension


Tabbed By : fender4string
Tuning: Drop D


Listen carefully to the song for timing.  The fills are
accurate but their timing isn't very well represented
though I tried my best for relative note by note spacing.

Have fun with this one!

**()** Parentheses are added here because, strangely, the bass fades out of
the mix for the last part of the guitar/bass/vocal harmony.  The last 2 notes
(E and B) aren't audible for the bass.  I added them as that's what
corresponds with the guitar line.

Definitely great, the only thing I would suggest is adding in a few mutes into the mix, and it sounds like it opens on an A sliding down with a muted note before it.

tman692-Yep, I meant A#. I am a fool :).

beano1-I should have tabbed out the mutes. There are lost of them in the verse. I just assumed most people would add them in naturally. Next time I'll have to include them!
