About this tab version
Previous versions are of the gihm acoustic cover, this is a more comprehensive tab in the band's tuning. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Blaise Bailey Finnegan III
     From Slow Riot for New Zero Kanada (1999)

The only tabs up are for the Gihm acoustic cover for this song, but I wanted to be able to play it in it's
original form in their tuning so I'm going to try my best to tab this out for everyone.

                                            Section 1 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Start off playing this riff while the voice sample comes in, notes in (parenthesis) are natural harmonics.
You'll want to have a delay on with a short level, almost like a slapback.

                                          Section 2
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After the intro riff, there is a string/drum crescendo, and then some ambient guitar sounds based off of the 
chords used in this next part. The guitar eventually begins to play this chord progression, after picking 
around the notes of the opening chord for a few seconds:

That guitar plays that for the duration of this climax, the lead guitar panned left starts off playing these 
very quietly, in snyc with the changing rhythm guitar chords:

                                          Section 3
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The guitars drop out here as the piano and then strings play with the voice sample for a few minutes. A left-
panned guitar begins to play this softly:

so I'll just end this here, enjoy.
