                             SEVENDUST – Skeleton Song
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Doubleday
Email: No way

Tuning: Drop D
Instrument: 6-string acoustic

Notes: This is meant for a lone acoustic guitar. I believe that this song is actually
played in Open B (Low to high: B F# B E A B) tuning, but it's a pain in the butt to
detune your guitar to that. This is a Drop D alternative, so the notes may not line up
with the real song, but they're close enough. I owe a lot too Mike Smith for doing the
best job tabbing this song so far, (his tab can be found on XGuitar.com.)

I haven't included the harmonics you hear in the song. I think those are over-dubbed
anyway. During the 2nd part of the chorus, you'll notice I have some 'ghost'
(or 'optional') notes there. Those are hard to hit on an acoustic without a cutaway,
so I left it open to the individual guitar player. Both the chorus and the bridge only
contain suggestions of how to strum the chords. The chords themselves are accurate, but
you may disagree with my strumming pattern. That's fine, just do what sounds best to you.
