Artist: Still Remains
Title: The Wax Walls of an Empty Room
Album: The Serpent (2007) RoadRunner Records
Tabber: Surge (surge_ on efnet, xsurgey on youtube)
Tuning: Drop D

First things first, let's pay tribute to this awesome song, and let's support the
called "Still Remains" who wrote this fucking masterpiece.
Tabs are now "illegal" in the united states for the most part, so please do these guys a
and go out and pick up both of their albums if you like the song.  They are available
Hot Topic if they don't have it at your local CD store.  It's not like they're 
and all over MTV.  They diserve to be, but they're not, so get off your ass, take out
wallet and buy this cd if the tab helps you out at all.

This song was a cunt to figure out cause of the keyboards sounding exactly like the
both guitar parts, and everything meshing all together.  How I did it was I imported the
into Sony Sound Forge 9.0 and I slowed it down by 50%, put on some headphones and went 
work.  Took me a few hours.  This should be almost perfect.
I only tabbed the lower guitar parts, you can add in the lead harmonies yourself.  Solo
down perfect too.  The lyrics may be off, didn't have time to double check them.  You
the idea though.

X = chug/mute
/ = slide
p = pull off
h = hammer on

Intro / Chorus:

Repeat twice, play very fast.
Reverb and mild distortion, neck pickup.
