Borealia - I Dreamed I Was Elected President Of The Ocean

Listen at: http://soundcloud.com/borealia/i-dreamed-i-was-elected

Tuning: AEADGBE

This song has a pretty dissonant main riff, and the lead guitar parts are
largely ad-libbed, so take liberties in playing it. All guitar parts appear
with variations on each repeat.

Ending: Play low E string. Don't strum for final bars, but hit guitar against 
something causing E string to sound just lighter than being picked.



Lead parts

W/synth wah

Intro: Sweep pick the strings behind the nut.

Gradually bend up and down somewhere between 3/4 steps
and 1 1/2 steps, depending on taste.

Very wide vibrato

These two previous parts are played ad-lib throughout, with variations
on bend range and rhythm. Sometimes, play very wide (2-3 step) bends on
both strings simultaneously. Sometimes, play just the G string and bend
as much as your guitar will allow it.

Some time in the second verse, randomly strum between the nut and tuning pegs.

Repeat ad nauseum as fast as possible. Let each tap on the B string ring out.
End with a zip up the G string and let the open E, B, and G ring out while
cranking the headstock back to bend the strings up almost a half step in rhythm.
