Behind Closed Doors  by: Rise Against

Tab by: Aaron Meredith

Tuning: ½ Step Down (Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-eb)

/ = slide up
\ = slide down
h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
b = bend
r = release bend
~ = let ring
. = palm-mute (pm)
| = stop


Just for the heck of it, try the optional D5 in the 1st bar. The rest of the tab has it 
Its a little easier the 023 way though. your call. At the time I posted this, nobody had 
main guitar part with a bend and release. Try it. I'm pretty sure thats what he's 
doing. Hope this helps.

I believe they are doing something very strange during the outro. like fading one guitar and bringing the other up in the mix. I just tabbed what I heard but I imagine its not perfect. The end of the third bar and the last are the ones I would question. The rest should be on. I just wanted to get the main riff in there cuz nobody was doing the bend.

Great job! This is a solid song that was neglected by RA fans, in my opinion.
