Tabbed by - jammyjamesm

Tuning - Drop D (GDAD)


First song released from new album (hopefully). This tab should accurate; some of the little nuances may be
missing or incorrect, but this should be a good starting point. Feel free to let me know of any mistakes.

This following part has a very similar feel to the bassline in Airbag
The timing becomes very difficult to show on tab here, so it's best to just figure out when to play.

I've separated the individual parts, just to make it easier to know what to play.
