Tab by Fiachra.
Tuning: Standard.

So this is a work in progress, I started it today because i just cant find any full tabs 
the song and i want to keep it
posted as i work on it in the hope that if anyone has any corrections or any of the 
parts we can can combine and
hopefully come up with a complete version of this epic song!

Theres a keyboard, a piano, two guitars, a bass, a percussionist, a drummer, various  
instruments and at least
three sets of vocals on the track..so going to need all the help i can get to try and 
a complete and finished version please!!

Part 1,
What if this storm ends?

Chords the whole way through this first part:
       Gm              F               C              A#sus2
|-------3--------------1---------------3--------------1-----------------|
|-------3--------------1---------------5--------------1-----------------|
|-------3--------------2---------------5--------------3-----------------|
|-------5--------------3---------------5--------------3-----------------|
|-------5--------------3---------------3--------------1-----------------|
|-------3--------------1------------------------------------------------|

There is also a lead bit that goes like:

|------------------------------------------------|
|---15------11-----13----------------------------|
|-------------------------8/10-------------------|  x4
|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|

Part 2,
The Sunlight through the flags.

This bit is repeated through out the section:
|-----------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------|
|--13--11------13--11------13--11------13--11---------|
|----------11----------11----------11----------11-----|
|-----------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------|

Another lead comes in over it on keyboard but I just havent got that yet.

The chords:
       E5  X8       Eb aug5 X4         C#5  X4
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|------9----------------8----------------6--------|
|------9----------------9----------------6--------|
|------7----------------6----------------4--------|
|-------------------------------------------------|

Another lead bit:

Repeat as necessary:
|---12--9----------12--9--------------------------|
|----------12--(9)--------12--(9)-----------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|

I dont have the distorted guitar yet either.

Part 3,
Daybreak.

Chords: (repeat through the whole section)
       D X16                     G X16
|------3--------------------------3----------------|
|------2--------------------------3----------------|
|------3--------------------------0----------------|
|------0--------------------------0----------------|
|---------------------------------2----------------|
|---------------------------------3----------------|

I suppose you could fingerpick it to make it more mellow like the track?
Something like:

|----x---------x---------x---------x--------------|
|------x---------x---------x---------x------------|
|--------x---------x---------x---------x----------|   X2 for the D chord
|-x----------x---------x---------x----------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|

|---x---------x----------x----------x-------------|
|-------x---------x----------x----------x---------|
|-----x---------x----------x----------x-----------|   X2 for the G chord
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-x---------x----------x----------x---------------|

Then at 11:50 or "somethin was bound to right sometime today" come in on a
second guitar with the D, E and G power chords:
           D5 X14  E5 X2    G5 X16
|--------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------|
|-----------7------9-------------------------------|  X4
|-----------7------9---------5---------------------|
|-----------5------7---------5---------------------|
|----------------------------3---------------------|

           D5 X16      G5 X16
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-----------7-------------------------------------|  X4
|-----------7---------------5---------------------|
|-----------5---------------5---------------------|
|---------------------------3---------------------|

Then back to:
           D5 X14  E5 X2    G5 X16
|--------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------|
|-----------7------9-------------------------------|  till finish.
|-----------7------9---------5---------------------|
|-----------5------7---------5---------------------|
|----------------------------3---------------------|
