“Surprise Ice”

You should be able to use a pick instead of finger picking. The only hard concept in 
song is the chord progression, but that will come with time. This is my first full tab but 
very accurate. At the bottom I have the lyrics after the part they occur in.

That’s all. It’s a hard song to play but really effective. If you’re going to play a 
for it, the bass is essential for all those key notes before the riffs/pickings. Just 
for it and you’ll know what I mean.

Any chance you could post just the chords, buddy? I'm not too proficient yet but I've got a yearning to play this song.

Hi and thank you very very much for the tabs! You've got all the right notes, but some parts are a lot easier to play and sound a little smoother. Great work!
