                               THE GREAT WIDE OPEN
                       As recorded by Funeral For A Friend
                (From the 2007 Album TALES DON'T TELL THEMSELVES)

Transcribed by Jordan Hamill (text version of my power tab)

Gtr I (C# G# C# F# A# D#) - 'Kris'
Gtr II (C# G# C# F# A# D#) - 'Darren'
Gtr III (C# G# C# F# A# D#) - 'Matt' (It mentioned he plays guitar in some songs on this 
so i think the fill is him)

Note: Timing is not perfect but im almost 100% sure all the notes are there,
i think the is the easiest way to play this but its personal opinion
    Q=73

Its just drop D down 1/2 a step ffs! Drop the bottom string to D (so the string sounds 2 frets lower), then tune every string down so they all sound one fret lower.

I want to post or [tab]
