D# G# C# F# A# D#
Artist: Coheed and Cambria
Track: "Who Watches the Watchmen" (Acoustic)
As Played Live on: Neverender SSTB Tour 2011
Tuning: e Flat

Tabbed by Lawrence Jones

Really neat song by Claudio, originally written for his Prize Fighter
Inferno (PFI) side project.  During the 2011 Neverender SSTB Tour, however,
Coheed played it as a band during their acoustic sets.  See below for links 
to live videos to see for yourself.  The original PFI song is in standard E, 
but when Coheed plays this live the instruments are tuned a half step down.

Note: As played live, Travis uses a 12-string guitar for his parts.
      Thus, it will sound slightly different when played on a normal
      6 string guitar.
