Papa Roach - Getting Away With Murder
Tabbed by: Jeff "Wasted Spaceman" Huss
Email: wasted_spaceman@hotmail.com
Tuning: Down one WHOLE step, and dropped D (CGCFAD)

This really isn't a difficult song to play.  The picking on the
first guitar part (during the parts where he plays an octave interval)
was really hard to hear, though.  At some points it sounds like he's
just sustaining the notes, at others it sounds like 16th notes,
and at even other times it sounds like flat out tremolo picking.

******************************************************************
Also, during the chorus, if I listen really closely, I think
I can hear some faint notes being played on the high-E string...
I included them in the tab as ghost (optional) notes.  If someone
else can hear them too, let me know...

The *only* reason I included them is because someone else 
******************************************************************

Another thing:  at ~2:10 into the song, at the end of the bridge,
he does kind of a Steve Vai style dive (like a horse whinnying).
That's what I mean by "horsie dive."

Included lyrics for the hell of it.  They're kinda lined up
with the guitar part...sorta.  Enjoy.

Oh, and this song was transcribed completely by ear yadda yadda.
I don't think there's even a tab book for this album out there yet.

NICE TAB!!!
you know the high notes in the chorus. i think it might be a very light octave, but i'm not sure.
try putting it to nearly maximum volume.. so you can hear it better.
Thanx for the tab (i think my band will do a cover for it)
