Title: Fainting Spells
Artist: AFI
Album: Crash Love (Deluxe Edition), from DU Recording Sessions (2006)

Tabbed by Hazel (lezahtherock). Email: latetoo00@hotmail.com

DISCLAIMER: I submitted a version of this tab before I created
an account and it can be found here:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/a/afi/fainting_spells_tab.htm.
This version is an EDITED one, so moderators can feel free to 
delete the other one! I put my name as lezah in the other one
because I posted the tab on the AFI message board originally,
and my board name there is lezah. Just to avoid any confusion.

Tuning: Half step down.

Intro - play twice, continuing on to verse

Eb|-0-0---0-2-2---2-1-1-1-1-3-3-3-3-|

As I...

Eb|-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-1-1-1-0-3-3-3-3-| 

then it builds up to this
eb|-3-x|
Bb|-0-x|
Gb|-0-x|
Db|-2-x|
Ab|-2-x|
Eb|-0-x|

I pray to reason (not sure about these lyrics):

Gb|---------55-5-55-5-7---| Strumming pattern for the palm-muted

Gb|---------55-5-55-5-7---| Strumming pattern for the palm-muted
