Swallowed in the Sea
Tabbed by Pat McInnis
pat@patmcinnis.com

Here's the beginning melody transcribed for the guitar. (I was just messing around with 
and I thought I'd include it)
Feel free too add slurrs and whatnot to give it some flavor. It sounds cool with effects 
such.
E---------------------------------------------------|

A--2--4--6-----6--4\2-------2--2-----2--2--2--|
E----------------------4----------4-----------|
Repeat one more time, with a few minor changes. (Notes are still the same though)

Then it goes to this:

E-------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------------|
G-----4-----4--6/8\6--4-------4-----4h6--3--------|

B--------------------------------------------|
G--------------4-----------------------------|

A-----------------6p4\2----2--4--6-----6--4--|

Repeat one more time, again, with slight changes.
