                             DECEMBER (Cover) - Shadows Fall
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Email: Stealyastile101@aol.com

Song: December (Cover)
Band: Shadows Fall
Original Band: Only Living Witness
Album: Fallout from the War
Tuning: Drop C

This is my first tab, and I had to submit this because I was looking for a tab for this
and searched google for hours and all that came up was the same bass tab over and over again.

The song has an odd bpm, so the rhythm was hard to show with dashes. But the beat isn't
hard to figure out.

(For the muted notes, I like to lightly bar my finger on the first fret, giving a 
sound.)

If you get confused at all, this is the song part order:
Intro A
Intro B
Verse
Chorus
Verse
Verse Var. X2
Chorus
Bridge X2
Verse
Interlude (Intro A Var.)
Verse
Bridge

If you listen to the song, it's easy to understand. Also, another note, there are slight
in the song. They are very minor, like one chord differences. Listen to when they are.
know there's a small one in one of bridge that goes 3 2 3 instead of 3 2 1. It's small 
like that.

Any corrections, email me or leave a comment. Remember this is the first time I've
