Song: In the Dark (track 7)
Artist: Flyleaf
Album: Memento Mori (2009)

Tabbed by: lutewielder

Welcome to my first tab!  As far as I know, it is mostly accurate, BUT I 
worked this out on my acoustic, which is here at school with me.  If you 
have a correction or suggestion, please leave a respectful comment.  I have
 included a Known Issues section after the tab.  Enjoy!

[I wanted to preserve the rhythm markings, so when there is a section with a
 repeating note that is two digits (10, 14, etc.) a comma (,) means repeat 
that note.  If this is too confusing, please offer a suggestion.]

Gtr I (E A D G B e) - 'Lead Electric Guitar'
Gtr II (D A D G B e) drop D- 'Rhythm Electric Guitar'
Gtr III? (E A D G B e) - 'Other Lead Electric Guitar'?

Known issues:

The INTRO might not be exact.  The guitar/amp settings made things fuzzy, so
 it was hard to pick out the exact order of the strummed/picked notes.  
Basically, Gtr 1 plays an E minor shape and moves the root up to G, and then
 F#.

In VERSE 2 a-d, the 1st, 7th, 13th, and 19th notes are hard to hear over the
 bass, which plays a note similar to an open Dropped D string.  I still 
think, however, that Gtr 2 is not playing 0 on that string, but 2.

In VERSE 2 c-d, Gtr 3 might not be a guitar at all, but some other stringed 
instrument.  I do not know, it sounds different to me, but I tabbed it 
anyway.

Verse 2 e is not completely clear to me.  Gtr 1 might be playing one 
note or two notes.  The guitar/amp settings are muddled to me.  Help?

Also in Verse 2 e, the Gtr 2 part might actually be played by a bass, but I
 am not sure.  I have included the tab anyway.

In Verse 3 d, the power chords at fret 10 and 9 might actually be a 
low-sounding C and B on a Dropped B string(?).  However, I do not intend to 
try to include B-tunings or crazy 7-strings or baritone guitars in my tab, 
haha.

The hammer-ons in CHORUS b & c are debatable...
