Song:  Mouths Like Sidewinder Missiles
Band:  The Fall of Troy
Album: Doppelganger

This is the first song I ever heard by these guys and ever since I heard it
I've been a huge fan of the Fall of Troy. I've yet to find a decent tab 
for this particular song so I thought I'd take a stab at it. I did not copy
this from anybody, I simply listened to the song and watched some youtube
videos of them playing the song. Also, this is my first tab so feedback
would be much appreciated. 


[Intro]

e|------10h12p0-----7p5p0------10h12p0-----15/17p0-------------------------|
B|--12---------------------12----------------------------------------------|
G|--X----------------------X-----------------------------------------------|

e|------10h12p0-----7p5p0------10/12---------------------------------------|
B|--12---------------------12----------------------------------------------|
G|--X----------------------X-----------------------------------------------|
D|--10---------------------10----------------------------------------------|
A|--------------10---------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------12---------------------------------------------------------|


[Chorus]

(no vocals):
e|------10h12p0------12p0---------------------10h12p0------12h15/17\15p12p0|
B|--12---------------------12/10p8--------12-------------15----------------|

D|--9--9--9--9--9--9--9-------|
A|--7--7--7--7--7--7--7-------|
E|----------------------------|


[Verse]

e|----------0-10/7--7/5--5/3--3p0--------------10/7--7\12--12/7p0----------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------7--------------------------------4-------------------------------|
D|--------5--------------------------------5-------------------------------|
A|--7-7-7-7--------------------------3-3-3-3-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    . . .                            . . . 

When Thomas plays the song live he likes to play this chord progression at the end
of the chorus (look at a video on youtube of them playing the song live and you'll
see what I mean):

e|--------------12--10--12-------------------------------------------------|
B|--12--13--12--13--12--13-------------------------------------------------|
G|--X---X---X---X---X---X-----7--5-----------------------------------------|
D|--10--10--10--10--10--10----X--X-----------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------5--3-----------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------7--5-----------------------------------------|


[Interlude]

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--12p0-----------12p0-------------12p0-----------------------------------|
G|---------12p0------------12p0----------12p0------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------10------10------10------10-----------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--12p0-------------15p0----------------12p0------------------------------|
G|----------12p0--------------12p0------------12p0-------------------------|
D|-------12------12-------12--------12-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------5p0-------------------------|
B|--7p0---8p0----------------8p0---8p0---7p0------------3-3p0--------------|
G|---------------7p0---9p0-------------7-----7---------------2p0-----------|
D|------5-----5------5-----5-----5-------------------------------2p0-------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat that part like 3 times then play this:

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------10-8--------8--6-6-5h6h5--------6--5-----------------------------|
G|--9--9--X--X--7--7--X-------------5--5--X--X--5/4/2--5/4/2--5/4/2--5/4/2-|
D|--7--7--7--7--5--5--5-------------3--3--3--3--2------2------2------2-----|
A|--8--8--8--8--7--7--7-------------5--5--5--5-----------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat this 3 times then play this:

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------4-------------------------------------------|
D|--7777--5555--3333--5--3-----2-------------------------------------------|
A|--8888--7777--5555--7--5--3----------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    ....  ....  ....  .  .  .

Then Thomas plays a solo then you have this:

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------16-16-16-16--17-17-17-------------------------|
D|--2222--5-5-5-2222--5-5-5--X--X--X--X---17-17-17-------------------------|
A|--0000--3-3-5-0000--3-3-3--14-14-14-14--15-15-15-------------------------|
E|--------3-3-3-------3-3-3---------------15-15-15-------------------------|

Then another solo then the outro:

e|-----------------|
B|-----------------|
G|-----------------|
D|-----------------|
A|--3--2-----------|
E|---------3--5----|


You guys can figure out the rythm and repeats and all that fun stuff. Enjoy.
