Transcribed by Aviad "horse Food" Hay.


Unlike most Cathedral songs, this one is played using a normally tuned
guitar (E A D G B E).


Opening Riff:

|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------s-------------------------|
|-6---7-----------6---7---4-------6---7---9-------6---7-----------|
|---------7-----------------------------------------------4-------|

|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|


The doomy verse:

Jennings tends to harmonize his riffs, I transcribed mostly the
main guitar.

Bridge part:

first without distortion, then with it (a lot of it).

Chorus:

The second verse is very much like the first one, with some minor
changes in the order of the riffs, and not the actual notes.


The following riff: (which goes under the little organ lead)

(semi palm mute)
(the stars indicates rhythm)

|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--*-------*-------*-------*-------*-------*-------*-------*--------|

|--*-------*-------*-------*-------*-------*-------*-------*--------|

later, a second guitar joins with the same riff, only in 8th notes,
instead of 16th.


The solo:

Which is not actually a solo but rather a collection of "bluesy" feels.


|------/----------------------------------\-------------------------|

                \|/
               all sorts of weird palm and string mutes


the riff under the solo:


|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|--2-----4------>-----------------|
|--2-----4------>-silence guitar--|
|--0-----2------>-----------------|


second set of martian bossa nova feels:


|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

|--4---3----------------------3--------------------------------------|

|-----------------4---6----------------------------------------------|

|-------------------8-p-6-h-8----------------------6--4---6--4p6---4-----|
|------------------------------9-----4----------6------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------6--9---------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The second riff under the solos:


|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|--4-----6------>-----------------|
|--4-----6------>-silence guitar--|
|--2-----4------>-----------------|


BTW: The solos are not very precise, but I think jennings improvises them
anyway so why not improvise yourself?

last riff:

The cosmic funeral ends with a double lead guitar jam on E...

Enjoy.
