Album:  LIFT YR. SKINNY FISTS LIKE ANTENNAS TO HEAVEN! [CD2: Track One: 01:10 - 13:24]

Tab for guitar transcribed by Ben Wilkinson (benwilko_faster@yahoo.com)

This is the basic outline for the clean guitar part. There are other
guitars being played with screwdrivers, and one of the basses plays
high melodies. Not every chord I've tabbed is strummed. There are times
when one isn't strummed, and times when chords are strummed more times
than I have tabbed. Notes of the chords are plucked between changes,
you can work out which ones :op Also, there is no strict tempo to begin with so
basically it is being played freely and slowly. The first 1 minute and
10 seconds is just a spoken word sample. I haven't tabbed the whole twelve
minute movement, just the fantastic and intricate chords that are played
throughout the first five or six minutes.

KEY:    p = pull off
        X = mute (with left hand/finger)
  eg -11- = fret eleven (not fret one then one again - no patronisation intended!) :oD

That's your lot! The overdrive kicks in now and the
seperate guitar parts are harder to pick out. You get
the idea though, eh?
