                             Tandem - Protest the Hero
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: FacetOfChaos
Email: abcnumber4@yahoo.com

Tuning: Half-Step down

READ THIS INFORMATION PLEASE~

Pay attention to the time markers for each section. Should help you to learn the song
and decipher it from text much more easily.

-x2  = play the line twice.
-x2S = play the entire section twice.
-Sometimes I will bracket off a part and add an x2 or other multiple behind it. That
means to play the bracketed part however many times specified.
-Also there are first and second endings used in this tab. They're a fairly
straightforward concept. Play ending 1 the first time, and ending 2 on the repeat. I 
notate these by
bracketing off the ending, and placing a 1. or 2. above it.

-If any of the above is confusing, listening to the section of the song while looking at
the tab should clear up any problems. Protest songs are quite complex and I'll do my
best to keep the tab as clear as possible.

I'm sure that there are some parts that aren't 100%, but I think it all sounds pretty
good. Slowed it down in Audacity but even with that, some bits can be hard to hear. If you
find any corrections, feel free to leave a comment.

I used mbthewisewolf's GP tab as a reference. Transcribed it all by ear but used his tab
as a starting point, to get a rhythm quickly, or occasionally to get an idea about what
the hell might be happening in a section. It's tough to hear at times. Wanted to be sure 
to acknowledge his work.

Definitely got some of those tapping parts down better than me hahaha. Maybe now I can make those transitions without sounding terrible!

Thanks for the credit, btw. =D

im starting to love that your tabs dont just show the easier part of each song. Damn you for making me actually learn how to tap well. Good tab
