Testament - More than Meets the Eye
Album - The Formation of Damnation
Tabbed by Wrshredder

Tuning - half step down (Eb)

This is the first riff.

------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------10--9--7--9/10--9------10--9--12--10--9--10--------|
-----------2-----------------------2------------------------------|
-----------2---8---7--5--7/8---7---2---8--7--10--8---7--8---------|
-0-1-3-2h1-0-----------------------0------------------------------|


You can also play the first riff with power chords if you like.
Use lots of slides with this riff. Listen to album for reference.
Like this:

----------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------|
-----10--9--7--9--10--9--------10--9--12---10--9--10------|
-2---10--9--7--9--10--9----2---10--9--12---10--9--10------|
-2---8---7--5--7--8---7----2---8---7--10---8---7--8-------|
-0-------------------------0------------------------------|


The the nice main riff, this comes 2 times:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-----9-----------------------------------9-----------9---------------------|
-----9-----------8------------5/7--------9-----------9----8----7----5/7----|
-----7-----------8------------5/7--------7-----------7----8----7----5/7----|
-000--00-000-000-6-00-000-000-3/5----000--00-000-000---00-6-00-5-00-3/5----|


Then the same riff comes along with singing, but slightly different:

---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
-----9-----------------9---------------------------|
-----9-----------------9----8----7----5/7----------|
-----7-----------------7----8----7----5/7----------|
-000---000-000-000...----00-6-00-5-00-3/5----------|


This is the chorus part. The rhythm on the second part is too hard to tab.
You have to listen from the album..

--3--1----------------------------------------3--1------------------------------|
--3--1----------------------------------------3--1------------------------------|
--4--2----------------------------------------4--2------------------------------|
--5--3----------------------------------------5--3------------------------------|
--5--3----8h7-11h8--12h11--14h11-12h11--8h7---5--3--222..-5---------------------|
--3--1--00---0----00-----00-----0-----00------3--1--000..-3--6h5h4h0--5h4h3h0---|

And the very last chords of the song:

-----------------|
-----------------|
-----------------|
-5-------22------|
-5---2-2-22------|
-3---0-0-00------|

Im too noob to tab the solo. I hope you like it anyway. Long live Testament! :)

Good show sir. Love the song, very good tab portrayal. I was wondering if you could play the single notes on the higher string? But very good tab.

Thanks! Yes, you can play it that way also. Im not too strict about how to play other peoples songs ,as long as it sounds good to you and its fairly close to the original, its fine. The point isnt to play excactly the same as the original ,right :P
I also want to say that when i make tabs i dont mark everything, usually just slides and hammer-ons/offs. Just to make the tab clear and readable. Best way to practice the tab is to listen to the music while playing. This is how i do it anyway..

When i play this i try to play the d and g strings bit louder in the first riff. Im also making tab of Henchmen Ride right now so i hope you check it out too :)

I want to post or [tab]
