                     Before The World Was Big - Girlpool
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: oddysee3030
E-mail: oddysee3030@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Reference material for this tab is two videos:
1)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ww6ocoCU8mk
2)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNM8Tg9pvDU
And also the album version of the song, obviously.

This song is pretty straightforward, and the guitar part is slightly less
complicated than in this tab because I added in some of the notes that would
usually be played by the accompanying base, because I'm playing by myself but
you'll know where they are when you start playing it and can then take 'em
or leave 'em. It just makes the song sound better when playing solo.

I tried to match the lyrics up with the notes as best I could, but i wouldn't rely on them.

Hope this works for ya, I love playing this song and thought it would be nice to share it.
Let me know if you think I missed anything, and keep in mind that things sound slightly different
without the accompanying bass line. 
Still, leave a comment with any... uh... comments... you might have.

Hey overall great tab!! My only issue is that I dont believe that in the intro phrase that the 5h7 is incorrect and the few 0 scattered aren't there. In the main record you can hear that that is the bass.
