                        Darkside - Paper Trail       
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tim van Kester

Tuning: Standard.

Darkside: http://www.darksideusa.com/

The album version is played on a guitar tuned down one semi-tone (Eb, etc.),
or the key was just changed digitally. I try to tab it for standard tuning, 
but still in the key the album version is in. This might make some licks
a bit odd to play. Blame Harrington. It's a fun song to jam to, but this tab
might give you some ideas.

Some licks are palm-muted, but I didn't indicate that everywhere.

Hey thanks for the tab, going to try it out as soon as i get home. Any chance of tabbing the song before this on the same album, "Heart?', i think the song is as good or better, Harrington does a real cool riff throughout most of it. Cheers, TW

I think the opening lick is played like this:
e|------------------------------------------------11-9x-9--9-10-11-----------|
B|-----------------------------5x----------------/11-9x-9--9-10-11-----------|
G|--pb15r13--11------11--------6x-6x-6---------------------------------------|
D|---------------13--------6/8----6x-6---------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------9--6----------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

They are the same notes but it sound better this way
