                        The Only Moment We Were Alone - Explosions in the Sky
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Mike V
Email: Edarotagv335@yahoo.com

Tuning: The Norm
Since there's no tabs for this i figured why not. It's one of their best songs. Note 
is just a rough tab, so it'll cover the basics. Hopefully any of u guys can elaborate on my 
& make a complete tab, well have fun.

( ) - Less audible notes played
/ \ - Slide
 ~  - Let ring
 h  - Hammer note
 !  - Strum as many times possible
The bang in the beginning, turn up reverb all the way and hit a pickup w/ur hand
