FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND - SPINNING OVER THE ISLAND
DROP Db TUNING - (Db-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Eb)

THIS SONG HAS SOME AWESOME RIFFS, BUT AS MUCH OF THE LEAD GUITAR IS FAIRLY
QUIET THE RHYTHM CAN BE A BIT TRICKY, SO IVE TABBED IT OUT AS BEST I COULD
BUT LISTEN TO THE TRACK TO GET A SENSE OF THE PARTS.
AS IM THE FIRST PERSON TO TAB OUT THE SONGS, IM DOING THE WHOLE ALBUM SO 
THIS IS ALL BY EAR, SO LEAVE ANY CORRECTIONS AS COMMENTS. CHEERS FOR LOOKING!

>CHORUS<
 - this section is nearly impossible to hear, so i had to slow the track
   down to half speed, so listen hard to see how it fits!

>REPEAT INTRO/VERSE<
 - at the start its slightly varied, but not hard to hear, so just listen
   and see how to play it.

>REPEAT VERSE PT.2<

>ENDING<
 - essentially just keep strumming this doublestop in the rhythm on the track.

 - then this guitar part comes in, with distortion.
 - after a while it varies to more palm muted, but its essentially the 
   same chords.

|-4-4-4-4-4-4--6-6-6-6-6-6---------------------------|

|---------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5--4-4-4-7-7-7-|


 - the acoustic part comes back, but this time guitar 2 plays this underneath: 

|--------------------------|
|--------------------------|
|--------------------------|
|-7-7-7-7-7-7--------------|
|-5-5-5-4-4-4-5-5-5-5-5-5--|
|-------------5-5-5-5-5-5--|


 - the distortion powerchords are then played again, and the song ends.
