Down To The Cellar
The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion
Dredg

tabbed by Brad (itsdarklikepoe@gmail.com)

Tune to Drop D

3/4 time 

Phrase A - This phrase will take some practicing, and 
Gavin (at least when I saw them play it live) plays it 
for most of the song...

Phrase B - Simple enough. Listen for changes. Triplets 
too hard to tab are indicated with (). Listen for the 
timing.

Phrase C - Mark's trademark picking. I chose to keep 
everything on the same string so I could just focus on
getting the picking right the whole time. Listen for
nuances in the changes.

Phrase F - Bridge. Tougher, but not impossible. Pick
the D and G strings (listen for timing) to get Mark's
riff right. Slide between chords on the D string and
hit the G string a split second later and you'll be
just about there.

I play octaves here, but I'm sure that's not what it
actually is. Please e-mail me if you figure it out!

TIP: Play it with two guitars. Obviously, the album is
recorded in layers, so unless you have a loop machine
or three guitarists, you'll have a hard time playing
it the same way. Grab a friend and have them learn the
tab and you can get a really nice sound out of it!

G1: A A B A E F -
G2: - B C D D F A

Play with three for the best sound. I arranged this so
you can get good results with guitarists of varying
abilities. G1 is the most technical and G2 is the
easiest. G3 is the Goldilocks part: fun, but a little
technical, too.

G1: A A A A E F <-- take a break and fill with chords! 
G2:   B B B B F -
G3:     C D D F A
  
Best of luck. Please let me know what you think!

As written, phrase A is missing a note. The
corrected tab should read as follows:

|e|-------0-------5-------2-------0-------3-------2|
*|b|---3-------2-------0---|---3-------2-------0---||*
|g|-----------------------|-----------------------||
|d|-----------------------|-----------------------||
