Not in rivers, but in drops, track 2 from "In the absence of truth"

This song has 3 Guitarists playing on it (and lots of reverb too), so please understand 
is an attempt to
tab it out for one guitar (with additional parts still). With "shortcuts" in 
transcription= x times.
Listen to the cd and it will be all very easy except there's many parts.
I haven't checked the videos on youtube to transcribe this but I spent a lot of 
time listening to it.
I believe it has 90% of all the parts (the ones that are consistant and that are not too easy)
and it is tabbed for Drop B.
Enjoy.

Drop B = B F#B E G#C#

Bass intro

then guitar slightly muted with OD or light Disto:

my favourite part for the outro is the wah+reverb guitar with OD or light Disto: Use these chords:
-5--0-------12-----------5--3----8----17--------------17--or-also-17--|
-8--1-------15-----------3--3---10----15-----or just--15--------------|
-5--2----7--14--or also---------------14------------------------------|
-7--0----7--12------------------------12-or-0-------------------------|
-5--0----5--12------------------------12-or-0-------------------------|
-0-(0)--(0)-----------------------------------------------------------|

I'll let you figure out the arpeggios here, they're pretty simple; or you can just feedback out
or play the Bass part.

Enjoy!
