The tuning for this song is Half-Step Down (see Light Years Away podcast on 
I originally tabbed it in Standard however figured I better tab it how Satch plays it. But to be 
it doesn't really matter which you play it in, for standard just move everything down a fret.

Listen to the song for the timing etc. Key at the bottom for the symbols etc.


For the intro just basically hold a G note (doesn't really matter what one, just get 
feedback off it)

Riff 1

Riff 3

From what I can tell here there are 2 guitars harmonising with one playing low and the
high, personally when playing along with the track I think doing the low sounds better
I'll tab both.

Low:

E|---------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------|
G|-----4h6-6---4-6--4\6~~/4~-------------------------|
D|---6-------6------------------4h6-6---4-6--4\6~~---|

D|---6-------6----------------------4h6-6---4-6--4\6~~-|
A|--------------------------------6-------6------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|


High:

B|------12h14-14----12-14--12\14~~/12~-----------------------------------|
G|---13----------13--------------------------11h13-13----11-13--11\13~~--|

Like the last one, this has high and low.

Play through riffs 1 and 2 again then we have the solo which I haven't worked out fully
so I post that on here when it's completed. Although it's a good one to just jam out to 
G.


After the solo we go back through riffs 3, 4 and 5. Then back to 1 and 2 again.

For the ride out:

E|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|--8-8-8-9~~--9-9-9-8~~--|
D|--6-6-6-6~~--6-6-6-6~~--|
A|--6-6-6-7~~--7-7-7-6~~--|
E|------------------------|

           x2

E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|12p11p-12p11p-12p11p-12p11p--11p9-11p9-11p9-11p9-11p9-11p9-11p9-11p9-12p11p-12p11p-12p11p-12p11p|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

                               x4    On the 3rd time tap with the guitar pick on the 17th
fret for 11p9 and 16th fret for 12p11


E|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|--8-8-8-9~~--9-9-9-8~~--|
D|--6-6-6-6~~--6-6-6-6~~--|
A|--6-6-6-7~~--7-7-7-6~~--|
E|------------------------|

           x4


E|------------------------|
B|----------4-------------|
G|------4-6--------4-6----|
D|--6-6--------6-6-----6--|
A|------------------------|
E|------------------------|

            X5

It's good, but all the rhythms that I don't feel that are right (in my opinion) I just listen to the song and get them down. But good tab :D
