                             Time Consumer - Coheed and Cambria
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jeff Cameron
Email: jcameron99@gmail.com

I’ve been looking at various tabs online for this song and none of them get it quite right.
I watched numerous live videos of C&C playing this song live, and it is plain to see 
that the notes documented in the tabs already posted online are not at all the same hand 
shapes and positions Claudio is playing live.
Mine are the correct ones.

So, here is my (hopefully 100%) correct tab of Claudio’s part in Time Consumer.
I used Transcribe to slow down the song and guarantee accuracy in the intro picking part.
I did not bother to include the lead line (Travis’) parts for simplicity’s sake, but 
those parts are easier to hear and therefore more or less correct in other tabs you may find.
I also find my documentation much easier to read, and the notes themselves easier to 
play than other tabs I saw.

Enjoy!

Well, there you have it.  This is positively what I have seen Claudio playing live, and 
if it’s good enough for him, it’ll be good enough for you.

Thanks!
