About this tab version
Most of this song was easy to figure out. However, I used speed-changing software and live videos to get accurate notes in the tapping solo. This tab should be very close to how it's really played. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Devin Townsend Project: Stormbending
Album: Transcendence
Tuning: Open C (C-G-C-G-C-E)

An awesome, uplifting song that is surprisingly easy to learn. I listened to it and sang
along for months before I even realized that the opening/main riff was in an odd time
signature. I'm guessing that listening to Haken has probably made odd time signatures
seem normal to me :) At the same time, I think it speaks volumes when a band can incorporate
odd time signatures/feel and make it nearly un-noticable.

Tip: For the tapping solo (Dave Young - Solo 1), think of it in two parts. For the first
half (before the repeat of the tapping section) your fretting hand stays in pretty much
one position, focusing on hammer-ons on the 2nd fret on strings 2 and 3 (B and G in
standard tuning). For the latter half, you fretting hand focuses on hammer-ons on the 5th
fret of strings 3 and 4 (G and D in standard tuning). While this is happening, your
tapping hand moves up three notes, then back down, while going back to a root note in
between each move up or down. Hopefully this helps some - though it's completely 
possible this tip may be more confusing than it's worth!
