ARTIST: Funeral For A Friend
TITLE:  Roses For The Dead
TABBER: Luke Charman (emoluke {AT} gmail.com)
ALBUM:  Hours
GENRE:  Emocore
YEAR:   2005

Right, here's Roses For The Dead all the way through, as I promised. As far as I can see
it's all pretty much perfect.. the intro and outro definitely are, and all the octave
chords. I'm not 100% sure on Kris' part of the pre-chorus, but what I've tabbed sounds
fine to me when I play along with it.

Enjoy!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Intro and Verse (Kris):

  (This riff is all two-handed tapping. Use your left hand for the 3's,
   4's, 5's, 7's and 9's, and use your right hand for the 11's and 12's).

eb|---------------------------------------|
Bb|--------------------------12-----------|
Gb|-----12-----11-------------------11h12-|
Db|---5----5------7---12--------9---------|
Ab|-7--------7------5----5h7------7-------| (Play this one twice).
Db|---------------------------------------|

eb|---------------------------------------|
Bb|--------------------------12-----------|
Gb|-----12-----11---------------4---11h12-|
Db|---5----5------5---12------------------|
Ab|-3--------3------3----5p3------3-------| (Play this one once).
Db|---------------------------------------|

eb|---------------------------------------|
Bb|--------------------------12-----------|
Gb|-----12-----11-------------------11h12-|
Db|---7----7------7---12--------9---------|
Ab|-5--------5------5----7-7------7-------| (Play this one once).
Db|---------------------------------------|


Intro and Verse.. and Pre-chorus and Chorus (Darran):

  (These are just chords. He plays them for virtually the entire
   song with varying rhythms).

eb|-----------|
Bb|-----------|
Gb|-5---5--7--|
Db|-5---5--7--|
Ab|-7---3--5--| (That first chord is right, it's not a normal power chord).
Db|-----------|


Octave Chords At End Of Verse (Kris):

  (The x6's/x10's/whatever is how many times you play the chord,
   it's just a straight rhythm).

eb|---------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|---------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|-12----11-----12----14----16----19----17-----16----14----|
Db|--x-----x------x-----x-----x-----x-----x------x-----x----|

Db|---------------------------------------------------------|


Little break before Pre-Chorus (Kris):

eb|---------------------------------------------|
Bb|----------------------------------12-12-12---|
Gb|-12-12-12---12-12-12---12-12-12---12-12-12---|
Db|-14-14-14---14-14-14---14-14-14---14-14-14---|
Ab|---------------------------------------------|
Db|---------------------------------------------|


Pre-Chorus (Kris):

  (These are all triplets, listen to the song and you'll
   get the rhythm easily).

eb|-------------------------------------------------|
Bb|-------------------------------------12-12-12----|
Gb|-12-12-12-----9--9--9----11-11-11----11-11-11----|

Bb|----------------------------------|
Gb|-17-----19-----16-----14----16----|
Db|--x------x------x------x-----x----|
Ab|-15-x16-17-x16-14-x16-12-x8-14-x8-| x2
Db|----------------------------------|


Bass Breakdown (Kris and Darran):

eb|---|
Bb|---|
Gb|---|
Db|-2-| (Just let the chord ring out while Gareth does his thing).
Ab|-2-|
Db|-2-|

Outro Octave Chords (Kris and Darran):

  (Watch out for the triplet-style rhythm on this section, listen
   to the song, and you will get it. These are the chords, and both
   Kris and Darran play them in unison).

eb|-------------------------------|
Bb|-------------------------------|
Gb|-17----19----16----14----16----|
Db|--x-----x-----x-----x-----x----|
Ab|-15-x7-17-x5-14-x6-12-x3-14-x3-|
Db|-------------------------------|


Outro Riff (Kris):

  (Asides from the intro, my favourite part. Superb outro. The last).
   5th fret on the Db string is swapped for a 3 on the Ab string on
   the 2nd and 3rd times through the riff).

eb|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

    . .   .     . .   .     . .   . . .   .     . .   .     . .   .


Outro Riff Octave Chords (Darran):

  (These octave chords are played during Kris's outro and the small
   section before it, they're similar to the others, but they go
   higher, right up to the 22nd fret. They might go to the 24th on
   some runs through the chords, but this is the scale anyway).

Gb|-17----19----21-22----19-17-16-17-|

Nice tab, but in my opinion Darran plays this during the pre-chorus
eb|-------------------------------------------------|

You may well be right.

I don't mean to be picky but that chord Darran plays during the verse and pre-chorus, sounds very wrong to me. I think it's just
Db|--2--|
Ab|--2--|
Db|--2--|
Apart from that the rest is perfect, awesome tab.
