                       THE HAUNTED- Kamelot
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Tyler Greig
Email: gtheleadguitarist@hotmail.com

Tuning: Drop d, down 1 and a half steps (B F# B E G# C#). I'm not sure if that's the actual
tuning Kamelot is using in this song (I've checked tabs for their other songs,
the majority seem to be in standard, but i guarantee you this one is NOT
standard tuning) but it's the tuning I'm using to tab it. I'm not too worried about
tabbing out timings, they should be easy enough to pick up by listenint to the song.
I'll try my best to keep it as unconfusing as I can, and using just 1 guitar.

| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| v  vibrato
| *  harmonic
| x  Mute note
| ~  let ring
| b  bend
| T  tap

Intro (Some kind of flute arranged for guitar. Through the intro it sounds
like there's a guitar layer where he's raking the bottom 4 strings behind
the nut- the rhythm for that should be easy enough to figure out.)

Sounds much closer to the recording if you volume swell each note.

In the middle of that part, this starts fading in:

Solo. This is what I got. Guaranteed not to be 100%, but I gave it a shot.
(The chorus is used as the rhythm)

  V sharp vibrato makes first note sound pinch harmonic-y :)

The fast parts are not completely correct, but I gave it an honest effort.


(Interlude- no guitar to worry about, but there's more flute stuff like
in the intro, so here's that, arranged for guitar:

PM. . .     . . .     . . .            . . .     . . .     . . .

Repeat chorus til fade.

Outro solo, again not 100%, but it sounds fine like this. (with octaver- or just play an 
up if you want)
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
And that's all I'm tabbing :) You repeat the first bit again, throw in a
few more notes and the song's faded.

And you're done :D

good job. 4 stars. The intro and part of the verses are off but the rest is spot on... as far as I know.
