Song Name: Work Of Art
Band Name: Extol
Album Name: Burial
Bassist: Eystein Holm
Tabber: Lance Sutton

This is one of the strangest songs I've heard from Extol, but it also happens to be one
my favorites. I think the lyrics are very interesting, as is the guitar. The bass sounds
crazy in this song, especially in the chorus, but it is surprisingly easy to play (one 
the reasons Holm is one of my favorite bassists of all time, simple yet complicated).
a fun song to play, nonetheless.

Tab your bass to D standard for this song.

_/_=slide
_h_=hammer-on
_..=alternate pick (for short)

*This is the very ending riff, where I believe he alternate picks through riff 3.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy playing this song as much as I enjoyed tabbing it.

You forgot the riff at 2:15, I believe it goes like this.
G----------------------------------|
D--------------------------------5-|
A----------5-4-5-----------5-4-5---|
E-0---0-3--------1-0---0-3---------|

This is still in D standard (even though your tab says differently) and I don't think the rhythms are perfect but it's simple enough to just listen to.
