"Slow, sinking feeling, kills the mood, your conveying
And it pulls me far down below, it might be best if you go

rest

I need to get up, yeah need to get up "

ENDING:


Riff 1- with distortion, Guitar 1 X2
Riff 2- with distortion, Guitar 2 X2

THAT'S IT, IT SEEMS PRETTY COMPLICATED BUT JUST LISTEN TO THE
SONG AND FIGURE OUT THE TIMING AND IT SHOULD BE PRETTY EASY.

Why standard tuning? thier are open notes with Db tuning in this song that you won't be able to hit with stardard tuning.
