                             .3 - Porcupine Tree
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Pottle
Email: cpottle@tulane.edu

Tuning: Standard...the bass needs drop D, but our 6th string isn't used.

This is my first tab ever, so any rates/comments are appreciated.

Hope you have an E-Bow handy for those infinitely long sustains on the first part.

Listen to the song for the timing...(E-Bow)

e|-10--/--12--\--8--\--3--/--5--/--10--/--12--\--8-\-3--/--5--/--6--\--5-----|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

                                   ...and then with this backward effect...

e|/-10--/--12--/--15--/--18--\--5-------------------10--5---------10--5--|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

The acoustic part...it's an easy little strumming pattern, so I'll just put the chords.  
this for the rest of the song, it's buried underneath all the layer.

e|------0-------|------0-------|-------0-------|-------1-------|
B|------3-------|------6-------|-------3-------|-------1-------|
G|------2-------|------5-------|-------0-------|-------3-------|
D|------0-------|------0-------|-------0-------|-------0-------|
A|------0-------|------0-------|-------0-------|-------0-------|
E|--------------|--------------|---------------|---------------|

When the band comes back in, there's this last little part that's some kind of effect 
with a wah...let those notes wail before you pull off.  Play this twice.

e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------|
G|--14p9----14p9-/-10----14p9----14p9-/-7-----------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------|


And that's it, hope everything is correct. :)

Silex has the correct chord structure. Those chords are the same exact ones used in "The Sound of Muzak", and Porcupine Tree tends to make their songs fit by reusing chord structures, and even similar riffs. Other examples include the relation of this song to "Strip the Soul", where the bass is very similar, and in the opening track on "Signify", "Bornlivedie", you can hear a sample used from the unused track "Wake As Gun I". It all fits together quite nicely.
