Song: Ice Age
Artist: How to Destroy Angels
Album: The Omen EP
Tuning: Drop Bb and/or Drop D


NOTES (READ BEFOREHAND):
I tabbed this in two tunings for this piece. Drop Bb (Bb, F, Bb, Eb, G, C) and a Drop D 
(DADGBE) for those people who don’t want to tune down.
And it’s basically all palm-muted (and most likely finger picked) unless said otherwise.
This is in two parts. The lowest Bb (or D) string is the rhythm, while the rest are the 
melody. Also, there’s a lot going more going on in this song, so this is just the 
skeleton. I plan to edit this some more and flesh it out later.

Great song thanks for tabbing. It's very accurate but not really possible to play as it is unfortunately, the octaves need to be moved (unless you have 3 songs) but like I said, very accurate. Great for 2 guitars.

Good Point. really the best way to play this is having the tuning Bb, A, D, G, B, E. (the Bb tuned down from the D) so the notes are easier to manage. I didn't want to confuse people however...

For the drop D version I personally would say that palm muting the main riff would work for the best because playing the song with or without muting the strings makes a pretty big difference on how you play it. So take my word for it and play it for yourself and I also love the tab you made which is pretty accurate.
