                             The Ancient Covenant - Faceless, The
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ernie L.
Email: emotion.ernie@sbcglobal.net

Here it is. An extremely incomplete tab of this song.
The majority of these parts are the lead guitar parts(Michael Keene).
Note that the majority of the breakdown(last half) of the song isn't tabbed because I 
figure it out.
When the playing the solo bits, I recommend turning your Tone knob all the way down,
You will get a really warm and rich sound close to what Keene got in the demo recording.
Feel free to take this tab and compile it into a more complete one.
However, I would greatly appreciate some sort of credit. Enjoy!

p.s. I apologize in advance if it's a little messy,
this is the first time I ever tabbed anything. :P

One thing, great tab, BUT, if One, (By Metallica.) is supposed to be Advanced, this would certainly be Advanced. One isn't that hard anyway. Great tabbing though.
