Song: Last Blues for Bloody Knuckles
Artist: La Dispute
Album: Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair
Length: 5:01

==========================================================

Info:
I tabbed both guitar parts to the best of my ability. I'm sure I've made mistakes 
somewhere along the line because I am by no means an expert guitarist, so 
corrections would be lovely. I also included the settings that I use to achieve 
the sound closest to that of the recorded track for anyone interested. I use a 
Digitech Bad Monkey overdrive and a Boss DD-3 digital delay.

============================================================================

Key:
h      : Hammer-On
p      : Pull-Off
/ or \ : Slide
X      : Mute
<#>    : Harmonic 
~      : Let ring
PM--|  : Palm-mute

I know that's not the whole song, but that's all I've got so far. I'm sure this 
can be used as a starting point for many people.

Absolute gold. You hit it dead on dude.
You knowing the correct delay levels also impressed me very much.
Badass.

hey man, great tab!
here's the rythym section you're missing in III-B. im about 95% sure this is accurate
really aggressive strumming, the x's in between the notes indicate a really fast up-down type strum. kinda like a quick triplet. the first two 7's need to be two down strums
e-------------|
B--------------|
G--------------|
D--77xx77xx7xx-| approximately 16x
A--77xx67xx7xx-|
E--xxxxxxxxxxx-|
then, under the higher lead it opens up. same thing applies for the triplets. (i know it's sloppy, but the 0's actually represent the 10th fret. sorry, this is my first and i haven't quite figured it out yet)

e--------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------|
G--------------------------------------| whole thing 4x
D--80xx80xx0xx-------------------------|
A--00xx00xx0xx---(3x)------------------|
E--88xx88xx8xx--------13-13xx11-11xx11-|

sorry for the sloppiness, i'll try working on the lay outs. hope this works for y'all
