"Embodiment" by Carcass (from "Heartwork")

(Tune down 2.5 steps to B)

Thanks are due to Mike Driscoll and Avian Hay for their work.

Intro:

|-2---------3-----|-2----------|
|-2-----3---1---3-|-2----------|
|-0-0-0-1-x---x-1-|-0----------|

|---6-7h9~~-7-6h7----|---4-5-----2------|
|-4------------------|-2-----0----------|
|--------------------|------------------|

Then repeat the above with the other guitar playing a harmony
(up a major third, with the exception of the C# and G# notes, which
are harmonised in minor thirds... is this clear?)

|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
|---4-5---4-5---4-|-5-7-5-4---------|---2-4---2-4---4-|
|-2-----2-----2---|---------7-5-4-2-|-1-----1-----1---|
|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

|-----------------|  Then again with a harmony, in perfect
|-----------------|  fifths this time.  The final measure
|-----------------|  is different:  just three G5 chords
|-----------------|  to lead into the verse.
|---4-5---4-5---5-|
|-3-----3-----3---|

Verse:
|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

Later on, the second riff after the intro (the palm-muted progression with
B A# G as its roots) is heard with the second guitar playing power-chords:
A#5    G5    the first time
A#5 C5 G5 A5 the second time, into the following:

"Raaargh!  From your knees arise..." (corrected 2/12/01)
