	       A Song for Our Fathers - Explosions in the Sky
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
From "How Strange, Innocence"

Tabbed By : francis simard
e-mail: chicago_emo_city@hotmail.com

Tuning: standard

I spent a lot of time trying to play that bassline correctly. I finaly made it and I'm
sure there's no mistake in it. However, it's the first time I tab a song ever. So, if
sounds a bit off or just completely awful, please email me, I'd be pretty happy to see 
wrong. This band is awesome, I can't wait to see them live in montreal.

1st riff :

G|-----7---------11------11------9-------------7-----7-6-------7---7-6---6--|
D|-------------------------------------------------------3/5-5---5-----7----|
A|---------------------0----10-9---10-9-10\7-7---7--------------------------|
E|-7-7---7/10-10----10-----------------------------7------------------------|

2nd riff :

G|-----7---------11------11------9-------------7-----7-6-------7-----9-6----|
D|-------------------------------------------------------3/5-5---5-7-----7--|
A|---------------------0----10-9---10-9-10\7-7---7--------------------------|
E|-7-7---7/10-10----10-----------------------------7------------------------|

3rd riff :

G|-----11---9---7-------11---9---7---------11-----9----7------------6-9-6---|
D|------------------0-0----0---0---0--------------------------7---7-------7-|
A|-----------------------------------10-10----10----10---10\7---7-----------|
E|-7-7----7---7---7---------------------------------------------------------|

ends on

G|-----
D|-----
A|-----
E|-7---

now here's the way you should play the song :

1st riff + 2nd riff  2X
2nd riff             1X
3rd riff             2x
1st riff + 2nd riff  2X
3rd riff             2X
1st riff + 2nd riff  6X

/  slide up
\  slide down

good luck

very nicely done mate!
I believe you have 2 mistakes in it. First it sounds like Michael is playing in the third riff (second "part") |D D F# E F#| and not |D D F# E D| like you wrote.

Other than that, the song structure goes riff 1 & 2 x2, riff 2 x1 and then again riff 1 & 2 x1, 7 times total as opposed to 5 you wrote.

But those are just minor things, excellent job mate.

This tab is great man. Good work. There are indeed some little flaws in it but it still sounds great.

They are one of the best bands I ever heard. Have fun at their concert .Kinda jealous 'cause they never come to Belgium.

Well done, sounds alot like the song if you're playing it solo, but after playing with the song, it didn't quite fit. So
I scoured the net, and found this. http://clenchingbowels.com/beleg/bassline.jpg which is actually the song.

Thankyou
anyway.
