                Godspeed You! Black Emperor - The Dead Flag Blues
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Stefan Vermeulen
Email: darkwinternights@hotmail.com
From the album: F#A# (Infinity Symbol)

Tuning: E

The guitar parts start at 10:08 into the song. There are two guitars (and a bass but I 
it for guitar).
I haven't figured out the lead guitar, so feel free to e-mail me! :) I think it's pretty close.
Awesome band, awesome song.

Just play around with these chords.

          C          Am          F         Am

e|--------8-----------5----------1---------5---------------------------------------|
B|--------8-----------5----------1---------5---------------------------------------|
G|--------9-----------5----------2---------5---------------------------------------|
D|--------10----------7----------3---------7---------------------------------------|
A|--------10----------7----------3---------7---------------------------------------|
E|-5/7/8--x----8\7\5--x---5\3\1--x---1/3/5-x---------------------------------------|
   t t t       t t t      t t t      t t t

Stroke each chord just 1 time.


After a while, play it like this:

          C                     Am               F               Am

e|--------8--8-8--8-8-----------5-55-55----------1-11-11---------5-55-55-----------|
B|--------8--8-8--8-8-----------5-55-55----------1-11-11---------5-55-55-----------|
G|--------9--9-9--9-9-----------5-55-55----------2-22-22---------5-55-55-----------|
D|--------10-1010-1010----------7-77-77----------3-33-33---------7-77-77-----------|
A|--------10-1010-1010----------7-77-77----------3-33-33---------7-77-77-----------|
E|-5/7/8--8--8-8--8-8----8\7\5--5-55-55---5\3\1--1-11-11---1/3/5-5-55-55-----------|
   t t t                 t t t            t t t            t t t

Play each chord 5 times, in this motion: down, down-up, down-up.


| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| x  Mute note
| t  Play with your thumb

What I've figured out of the lead:

e----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
G-13b15-13---10b11----10-8-6---6-8-10--11p10----13b15-13--13-13b15r13--10-10b11r10-D----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

e-----------------
B-----------------
G-10-8-6-5(6)r5-3-
D-----------------
A-----------------
E-----------------

Note: 5(6)r5 Play with 5 already bent up and release, I'm bad at writing tabs.

The idea of your tab is right, there's just one very important flaw. The song start on A#, not A. If you move everything up one fret it works (listen to the song and you'll be able to tell). This kinda spurred me to want to write out my own tab of this song haha. It'll be up in a bit.
