Band: Mastodon
Album: Crack the Skye
Track 1: Oblivion
Tabbed By: Jamie Hough

Before I start can I just point out that I know this isnt 100% correct - its probably
50% correct (if that). I have worked for HOURS on trying to get this tab down but Im
great difficulty. Therefore I thought I could post what Ive come up with so far and hope 
someone with a far greater knowledge of guitar can fill in the blanks/improve parts to
tab. I cower from the hordes of fellow Mastodon fans who will find this 'incomplete' tab 
and feel the need to tell me in the comments box, but please know that I am only trying 
aid the collective effort for someone to get a full tab out soon... lets begin!

This is the part that has been KILLING me to figure out - its based around the following

it out - its driving me insane!

Ok, thats as much as I can do for now. Again, I apologise for its incompleteness and
but I hope Ive done enough for someone more talented than me to do the rest of the work.

Ok this is the 2nd tab in a week thats done this to me but somewhere in the 'pending approval' process bit of submitting the tab the sentences have been messed around with and words are missing off the end of EVERY line. I think your head can pretty much fill in the blanks but if not just message me and I'll send you the corrections. Im really sorry about it though - its annoying when you put so much effort in and it ends up in a mess...

I'm working on the entire album here and there. I have up until the chorus done on Oblivion and I see a few things on yours that I think might need corrected. It's mainly stuff like the "10-000000-10-00-13" in the verses. Mastodon plays it as a 3 and 6 on the G instead. (Based on the CTS DVD). I also think I have that 1:18-1:40 part. That is really tricky. Other than that im not sure. I'm excited to go home tomorrow and give your tab a try though.
