Tabbed by: Rory H

Tuning: DADGBe

Fave song from Drones, so I thought I'd put my (not quite perfect) tab up :) It does in places require
some kind of pitch shift pedal.
Matt (guitarist) uses a digitech whammy, I get by with a behringer ultra-shifter. 
If there are any modifications or improvements you'd like to make, please don't hesitate to comment or 
email me!

[SOLO]

(2:39 - 3:38)

Start by striking above the nut at +1 octave and lean off the pedal for a 'dive bomb' effect

G|-14b16------------------------------------------(***)-------------| slowly lean onto +1 octave whilst
D|-----------------------------------------14-12--------------------| doing so, then harmonics on 5th
A|------------------------------------------------------------------| fret and lean off +1 fairly 
D|------------------------------------------------------------------| slowly. (If you can be bothered)

Now mess around with these positions before the outro with fast strumming
e|----------|
B|----------|
G|-7-6-8-11-|
D|-x-x-x-x--|
A|-5-4-6-9--|
D|----------|


[OUTRO pt1]

(Play it LOUD ;))
e|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------|
D|-12-0-3-0-4-5-0-6-0-7-8-0-9-0-10-11-| x4
A|-12-0-3-0-4-5-0-6-0-7-8-0-9-0-10-11-|
D|-12-0-3-0-4-5-0-6-0-7-8-0-9-0-10-11-|

Then go back to messing with those positions with the fast strumming and finish on

e|-------------------------|
B|------3------3-----------| 
G|------5b7----5b7---------| <-- Matt uses his Fernandes Sustainer Driver here to create harmonic feedback
D|-0--------0------0-------|     but this should sound pretty good for it
A|-0--------0------0-------|
D|-0--------0------0-------|

Hope this has been somewhat helpful!!

Awesome tab, best version. Would you recommend a behringer ultra-shifter then? does it work well for this song just on its own or would I need to get an expression pedal as well? Thanks

Final chorus - little wrong. In live videos Matt plays without D-string
