Heavens, the highly-anticipated reult of Alkaline Trio member Matt Skiba and his roomate
from Theives Like Us, is blazing onto the music scene September 12.  They've released
one song, this one I am about to tab out for you.  I heard it and loved so I decided to 
the entire thing out.  I'm happy to let UG have it first.

Artist:  Heavens
Song:  Patent Pending
Album: To Be Announced
Record Label: Epitaph


There are two guitars at the begining of this song.  The main riff is the first one
here, and the second you can hear in the backround over-top:

Intro:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------|X4
--2-2---4-4---5-5---4-4---7-7---5-4-0--0---------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2:
---------------------------|
---------------------------|
---------------------------|
--12---9~--7--9~---12-14~--|
---------------------------|
---------------------------|

Verse:
Now, if you've heard the song, you know it's not really just distorted, or even
power-chords.  So for this section, I don't want you to play ska chords, but i would 
you to
the first note on an upstroke and then continue, hitting the majority of the mutes with 
downstroke.
So when you're hitting the notes, try hitting the G and D strings first.

--------------------------------------------(Pickslide)----------------------|
Place a curse, on the hearse we're driving, cut the break lines and a dying
Glad to be, tramatically, against the ropes lost all hopes trying
Finding ways to break the silence, and to quench our taste for violence
Shadow-free monstrosities crafting up ? ? ? ?

Now, the verse goes a bit odd here.  What's going to happen is that one guitarist
to upstroke, but quitely with no root note on the E or A, while another palm-mutes the intro.

Outro:
This time Guitar 2 is a little different, so take note.

Guitar 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------|X8
--2-2---4-4---5-5---4-4---7-7---5-4-0--0---------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
--12---9~--7--9~---12-14--12-9--12--9--7--9~---12-14--12-9-----------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

End on:

-----
-----
-----
--0--
-----
-----

Or, for more drama, end on:
-----
-----
--9--
--9--
--7--
-----

So that's it.  A lot more complicated then I thought when I first heard the song, but it
fun to tab out and I hope you find it accurate enough.  Once again, I'm proud to
this first on UG.

-Michael

Great Tab! 5 stars.

who gave you 5 stars?

i mean it's a nice start, man, but you're missing chords all over the place. i'm looking toward the chorus when i'm saying this. they don't go right from E to A and then right back to A. it sounds like they hit a C or a B in there. i'm not trying to figure it out yet b/c it's 2:48AM and i don't want to pick up the guitar to correct it right now.

the verse chords are ska chords, as much as you may or may not want to play them.

not to sound like a total ******* above or anything. i'm glad you tabbed everything out. it's a great starting point. 5 stars, though? nuh-uh.

also, not that it matters to the tab, you got some of the lyrics wrong, too.

i.e. "dearly departed" not "duly departed," "new and improved," not "not yet approved."

that's just me nitpicking.
