Winning a Battle, Losing a War

tabbed by Bruno Gamba 30-03-2009

READ THIS, TUNING INFOS:

Well...long time that I don’t work on KOC tabs,and after that I saw a performance I 
out the 100% exactly parts of both guitars.This is the record version correct. Eirik uses a 
guitar with a strange tuning with the second string in “A” and not in “B”.
Erlend uses a standard tuning on both acoustic and electric parts.

Let’s start with Eirik main riff.

Eirik :Nylon Guitar (see tuning info).

Intro and Verse /Main theme : ("repeats" could be with slight differences trough the song).

REPEAT X3                               THEN:
E||-----------0---------------0--------|---------0-------------0---------||
A||------8-------8--------------0------|-----8-----8-------------0-------||

-------0-----0----0------------|-------0-----0----0------------|
---------3-----------3---3-----|---------3-----------3---3-----|
---------------3---------------|---------------3---------------|

In this chord hold on fingers 2nd,3rd and move only the 4th.


   X3                                 then:
E||-----------0---------------0--------|---------0-------------0---------||
A||------8-------8--------------0------|-----8-----8-------------0-------||

ecc.

End: Erlend plays some chords,I don’t tab them ‘cause they’re obvious,not sure they’re 
correct but sounds good.

E--3—--|--0---|
B—-1---|--6---|
G--2—--|--7---|
D--3---|--7---|
A--x—--|--8---|
E--x---|--x---|
 repeat x2        then :

E---0—--|
B—-10---|
G---9—--|
D--10---|
A--12—--|
E---x---|

repeat


After this Erlend plays an awesome riff on electric guitar:


Erlend : Electric guitar,standard tuning


Outro: “Everything is new…”

There's a small error on Eirik's bridge, I already sent the version fixed... :

---------0-------------0-------|---------0---------------------|
-----3-----3-------------3---3-|-----3-----3-------------0-----|
-------0-----0----0----0---0---|-------0-----0----0--------0---|
---------2-----------2---------|---------2-----------x-------3-|
--3------------3---------------|--3------------3---------------|
-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
This is the normal tuning , with the second string in B, the correct is this:

---------0-------------0-------|---------0---------------------|
-----5-----5-------------5---5-|-----5-----5-------------0-----|
-------0-----0----0----0---0---|-------0-----0----0--------0---|
---------2-----------2---------|---------2-----------x-------3-|
--3------------3---------------|--3------------3---------------|
