Song: Only Child
By Steven Wilson
Album: Insurgentes

Tabbed by Donnet Güemes Ovando

-----------------------------------------------

In this song, the bass kicks in before any of the guitars, a first guitar
comes in during the first chorus, and a second distorted guitar (possibly
tuned in DROP D) enters after the first chorus. Listen to the song to know
where each part goes.

Guitar 1

There is a guitar during the chorus that plays with some sort of effect.

After the first chorus there's a seconds guitar with distorion that plays the very same 
the bass does.

However, I'm not entirely sure if it plays in this tone or an octave lower, in wich case 
would be tuned
in drop D, and would go like this:

Verse:
