Emery - The Ponytail Parades
tabbed by: Jonathan Osmark
email: osmark86@hotmail.com

This is my third tab submitted, and it's emery again.  They're a great band and deserve more
recognition than what they are getting.

It's a really long tab, because emery writes complicated music with 3 guitars and piano, so I'm doing
my best to squeeze it all into one tab.  BARE WITH ME!  Enter "the ponytail parades"!!

NOTE!: To be quite honest, these guitar parts do not sound very impressive on their own.  I recommend
that you grab someone that plays the guitar (preferably TWO guitarists!) to fully enjoy the complicated
composition as a whole.  What I do when I play this song by myself, is that I pick out the most 
interesting guitar parts from any of the guitars and just play along to the CD!  Play around...

Note also that the rhythm patterns in this song are a little off beat at various places.  You will have
to listen very carefully for these variations in the rhythm yourself, cuz it's too hard to try to show
by simply tabbing.  I've laid out the notes for you, the strumming and picking is your challenge!

tuning: 1/2 drop standard (d# A# F# C# G# D#)

key:
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
h = hammer on
p = pull off
#x= number of repeats
*^ = bend-release
(*)= optional note (yup!)

Holy hell this tab was long, but I hope it's very helpful.  Some things were hard to decide, such as
whether 2 guitarists played the same riff etc...but I think that I've done a fairly good job with all
that.  PLease send me any suggestions or things that you think should be changed.  Thank you.
