Song: Cicatriz ESP
Artist: The Mars Volta
Album: Deloused in the Comatorium
Tuning: Standard
Tabbed By: Nathan Zwiener
Credit To: David Elliott (duv_elliott@hotmail.com) and daddycool12@arcor.de for 
a few parts of this song.

Song starts with some random guitar noises, which are shown on the B and E strings. 
for the timings of them. The baseline goes as follows, and the second half can go on the 
shown or an octave lower (indicated by the two parenthasised notes).

Now play Verse, Prechorus, then Chorus. This time, play with this modified verse that's 
the normal verse instead of playing the verse twice.

This tab is still being worked on, but this is the whole written part of the song. I'm 
the improv'd part of the song, but it's long and confusing so I'll get it in as soon as I can.

For now, here's the last verse/chorus. It's slightly changed. Make it jazzy, and put character into it.

Verse
|---------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------|   Repeat
|-------------------------------------------5-|         x1
|--7-7--7-7--7--5-7----7--7-7--7--5-7--5h77---|
|-7-----------------------------------7-------|

|---------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------5-|   Repeat
|--7-7--7-7--7--5-7----7--7-7--7--5-7--5-77---|         x1
|-7-----------------------------------7-------|
|---------------------------------------------|

Chorus (repeat)    Right before end:
|-0-0-5--------|---0-----0---0---0----|
|-4-4-5--0-0-0-|---5p4--/5---7---8\---|
|--------5-4-2-|----------------------|
