                             HARAKIRI - SERJ TANKIAN    
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: This is my version of it, I combined the other tabs I found of it
and also put in some of my own things. This is how I play it,
there's some things I havn't included, for example there's some 
notes being played in the background of "They crowned the sun..".

Awesome job man, this is perfect! The verse is a little confusing and you really have to listen to the song to figure it out (no pun intended) but it all sounds correct.
