                             COMPANY CALLS EPILOGUE - Death Cab for Cutie
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: A.J. Conner

This song is one of Death Cab's best, and it's also one of the
saddest songs I've ever heard. I finally figured it out. Enjoy :)
Please rate/comment for corrections or opinions.

Tuning: EADGBe
LOOK FOR REPEAT SIGNS.

For the second verse, everything from the main riff to the
post chorus is played again. Then the interlude and outro
are played. For the interlude, guitar one plays the
post-chorus riff over and over, while some sort of bells play
a melody. I felt it necessary to tab out the bells part
for guitar, because I think it's the most emotional
part of the song.

  Interlude -(guitar one plays post chorus)

  Guitar two -(bells melody)

Argh, I was wondering why it was taking me forever to find this tab; you got the song wrong. This is the tab for "Company Calls Epilogue", which is different from the original "Company Calls" song.
