BAND: LOST PROPHETS
SONG: THE FAKE SOUND OF PROGRESS
TABBER: LyCrAkE - o_thurtle@hotmail.com
TUNING: SEE TAB

Hey i decided to tab this song as there are no good tabs 4 it here, i spent ages on it and
it is perfect 

virtually, i did Shinobi vs Dragon Ninja too but that is a bit wrong. 2 guitarists are 
needed and i 

suggest this effects setup.

LEAD GUITAR: Wah (maybe autowah?) Flange, Clean Distortion
RHYTHM GUITAR: cLEAN dISTORTION, Overdrives of somekind

Ok, i only detuned the bottom 3 strings, and tuning all the way down two tones is not 
needed even thought 

lost prophets tune the whole guitar down 2 tones i couldnt b bothered and it sounds the 
same  either way. 

Tune both guitars to :-

e - Thinnest
B
G
A#
F
C - Thickest

A weird tuning i know but i couldnt b bothered to retab it for a totally stepped down 
guitar.

Ok here it goes, a well done song this..

Ok, that is exactly how it is played! Pretty easy, but i h8 the tuning down but there we 
go thats how its 

done. The pitch of the notes is perfect, so dont argue. Dunno about the effects but this
is wot i think 

it is. 

Thanks very much, if you have ne sensible alterations post them, but its like 99% right, 
email me if you have anything 2 say! o_thurtle@hotmail.com

yeh it took not too long, but it shuld b fine, i tuned the guitar down as much as i needed, obviously the prophets tune all the way down, but with the tuning i have used it does sound fine, some 1 can feel free to transpose it the way the prophets have their guitars but it'll sound the same (i think!)
