                             THE SERPENTINE OFFERING - Dimmu Borgir
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:
Email:

Tuning:There is a bit of discrepancy of whether or not this is in C standard or D
standard. For this tab, however, I am in D STANDARD. 






  All of those 3's and 2's and 10's are randomly represented below. Those are the correct
notes, but not the correct value of each note. Just listen to the song.

*Not triplets, expanded for clarity.

         Repeat that twice.

E|-1/4\1/4\1/4--0--------1/4\1/4\1/4--0--------------------------------------|


  Repeat that until told otherwise.

Enters guitar 2, octave above.

G|-------------4-----0-1-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-3/6\3/6\3/6-2-2-3---------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Stop once Shagrath starts singing again.


This is the part that makes me wonder if Dimmu Borgir changed tunings between cds. 

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-7--------7----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-7------5-7-10-9-7-------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-5----7-3-5-8--7-5------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------5--------------------------------------------------------------------|
heavy pm. . . .  . . 

  Play that twice.

  After that, Play those top couple bars as you hear them being played.

Clear singing part:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-7-----------------2-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-7-----------------2-------------------------------------------------------|
E|-5-----------------0-------------------------------------------------------|    

Play that until you hear chord changes, which are:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-3---------7--------3----------------------------------------2-------------|
A|-3---------7--------3----------------------------------------2-------------|
E|-1---------5--------1----------------------------------------0-------------|
 these aren't in proper order, but it finishes on the D5 chord ^


Then it's this little doohickey then that slide riff some more.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----9-9-10--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----9-9----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--7-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Something like that.
Now end the song with
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|11111-1h4p1-11111-1h4h1-00000-0h3p0----------------------------------------|
  .....       .....       .....
Hit the string hard on that first 1. Repeat until you feel good about yourself, then the
last to notes are palm mute D5.

D-Standard is DGCFAd, not DGEFCd. You should fix that. You wrote the tab correctly though! If it was possible.. 4.5*. But I say 5*.
