Coheed and Cambria – The Velorium Camper I – Faint at Heart (Acoustic)

READ NOTES FIRST:

-       Ok, this is the song that made me adore this band. Wouldn’t wanna mess up on 
it now, do I? So, if there are any mistakes, feel free to e-mail me (e-mail’s on the bottom).

-       If you’ve noticed, there are some changes in the lyrics as well.

-       There are certain parts here that I won’t be writing the chord strumming 
just the chords itself. It is understood in this tab that the chords I write are triads, what 
nowadays commonly mistake as “POWER CHORDS” (ex. A – 577XXX).

-       If there is a “P” under a given note/chord, it means it’s 
“L” means lyrics.

-       FYI, in the C (X355XX) - open string D & A (X00XXX) – C transition, you may 
the open notes to an A (577XXX). The latter one sounds lighter though...

Standard tuning: EADGBe

------
L: I'll savor all your form to show you how and where I bleed.


Chorus: 01:50 – 02:21.
=======
This one’s basically the same as the first chorus, but add a few more syncopations 
between the chord patterns and add some normal strums with the palm-mutes.

   *Weak – loud strum.
- Do this twice, but exclude the “*” at the second one.

Phase 1: 02:38 – 03:10.
========
- Just figure out the changes in the palm-mutes, mutes and the regular strums. 
be too tiresome for me to tab the whole thing out.

A A B B C C (3X)

L: You were so well behaved.
L: As you arched and made your way...
L: A gift’s for you engraved.
L: You shift and stretch your legs.
L: You were so well behaved.
L: You were so well...
L: You taught these tricks that make...
L: You were so well behaved.

A|-0-7--7-7-7-0-5-3-7-5--3--2--3--5-----------------------------------|
E|-0-5--5-5-5-0-----5-3--------1--3-...........-----------------------|
- After the last C there’s a highly syncopated muted strum pattern (it’s 
is approximately the same as the usual 16 strums or so– i.e. A A).

L: If the world stops turning, girl you better not stop when I say.
L: And there ain’t nothing you could do to count me, count me down.

- Do this three times.

                                     |- Do this twice.

   dead.

- Do this twice.


Phase 3: 03:56 – 04:24.
========
- Again, too tiresome to tab...
------------------
D D E C *D
P P P
* Single strum.

L: But I'm not quite sure what you've been told on Labor Day.
------------------
*D D **E ***C
       P
* Ascending.
** Strong single strum then palm-mute.
*** Strong single strum then weak strums.

L: Oooh, I'm not starting with you but the faint of heart... well,
   worry’s way.
------------------
D D E C (2X)

L: But I'm not quite sure what this unfolds on Labor Day.
L: Oooh, I'm not starting with you but the faint of heart.
------------------


Chorus: 04:24 – 05:29.
=======
- No palm-mutes, more open notes strumming and stronger playing.
- Play it twice. So, after the “...my love...” part, don’t hang the C 
first time around.
-When the chorus is repeated, you can even hear the open e-string being strummed, but I 
to not play it.

L: Did somebody take your tongue?
L: In worries of the words that you couldn't say (that you wouldn’t
   save) them from.
L: But I don't wanna sleep without...
L: So I bid to you goodnight.
L: Tonight sleep tight, my love.
(Repeat)

End with *F.

*The song originally ends with the C, but then he makes a crappy
 sounding F end the song in this version.

...And that’s it!

Thanks for the compliment dude! Sorry for the messed up "read notes first" part though... I don't know what the crap happened there.

- What I was trying to say was that the P under the chords meant palm-muting, and that the X799XX - X577XX - X799XX transition
can be X799XX - X000XX - X799XX.
