                             STORM CORROSION - Storm Corrosion
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Aays
E-mail: blankepitaph@live.ca

My favourite song off the new record. Done entirely by ear, so forgive any
mistakes, though I feel that this is fairly accurate.
I believe Mikael uses a classical nylon-string for the most part, and pretty much
the entire thing is fingerpicked except the solo.

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

This first half is played constantly for about the first half of the song (though upon 
repeated listens, I don't think it's the 'hyperspeed' I was claiming it to be!), so get 
those right hand fingers flexing!

Whenever this riff shows up, it can also be played with an open B played after the open
high E instead of E on the D string (like I tabbed out in the last part of this measure)
Both ways sound correct to me, so just pick whichever pattern is easier for your right
hand to work with and stick to it throughout the song.

beginning of this measure is hard to make out... let the last note of the measure ring
for a bit

Change around the 5:00 mark (Cheers to Pablo V. for correcting this part!)

A louder steel string guitar later joins in.

During the wall of dissonant sound, this joins in around 7:40

Play the first two open notes really fast with your thumb and forefinger.
Repeat till that dissonant keyboard chord takes over.

Well there you have it, one of the most beautiful songs ever (imo) written tabbed out in full.
Rate, comment, and most importantly ENJOY! :)
