Song: The Trivial Paroxysm
Band Name: Becoming the Archetype
Album: Terminate Damnation (Tooth and Nail records)
Music by: Jason Wisdom, Sean Cunningham, Jon Star, Seth Hecox and Brent Duckett
Transcribed by: Alex Polgar

So as I promised when I did the intro to this song, this is the full version. I did not 
any of the solos but I did do the piano part converted to guitar. I think it sounds good 
only riff that I had trouble with was Riff #22 but I think I did it well. Anyways, enjoy!

Then there is another solo and then to end the song there are just some open string 
riffs that I'm sure you can figure out yourself.

Around 4:15 in the song I'm pretty sure that instead of Riff 21 it goes like
|D|----------|
|A|----------|
|F|----------|
|C|-0--5-4-2-|
|G|-0--5-4-2-|
|C|-0--5-4-2-|
then
|D|----------|
|A|----------|
|F|----------|
|C|-0--3-2-0-|
|G|-0--3-2-0-|
|C|-0--3-2-0-|
if the song had all the solos and a few minor errors were fixed, I'd definately give it a 5. Great job on what you've got though!
