WHEN IT FALLS (opening theme from RWBY Volume 3) - Jeff Williams feat. Casey Lee Williams

Guitar TAB
by Matty Jay (mattyjay@mattyjay.com)
guitarist for Alyce Hart (www.alycehart.com)

I could NOT get this song out of my head and couldn't find any transcriptions of it, so
I sat down and learned it the best I could. This isn't 100%, but it's pretty close. I
believe there are at least 2 guitar parts, but my arrangement takes bits from both parts
and combines them into one main guitar part.

Feel free to e-mail with questions or comments!


Key of D-minor, Dropped-D tuning

Here's the song structure with lyrics, so you can see how it all goes together!


Intro:   Bdim  C7    Am   Am7/G   Fmaj7  E7sus4


Verse:
                 Dm
Maybe red's like roses, maybe it's the pool of blood the innocents will lay in when in
the end
you've failed to save them.
            Dm
Their dying eyes are wide and white like snow, and now they know the cost of trusting
you is obliteration


Pre-Chorus:

Bdim/F       C7/E     Am6/9  Am               Am6/9  Am     Am6/9  Am
Mirrors will shatter,          crushed by the weight of the world
Fmaj7                E5      Bbmaj7#11
     The pillars collapse in shame.


Chorus:
               Gm                   Eb                   Dm                       G/B   Bdim
There'll be no rest, there'll be no love, there'll be no hero in the end who will rise above
            Bb                  F/A
And when it ends, the good will crawl
    C5                 Bb5               Ab5         G5              C5   D5   C5  G5  F5
The shining light will sink in darkness, victory for hate incarnate, mis - e - ry and
pain for all
             Cm6/9
When   it    falls

Sounds pretty good. Any chance for a full version when the soundtrack is released? Or other Jeff Williams tabs?
