What, no Neurosis tabs?! Well, their chords are sometimes hard to figure
out--they don't use pure power chords most of the time. Here's Under the
Surface from the Times of Grace album. It took me about 2 hours to figure it
out and type it up. Enjoy.

Neurosis - Under the Surface

Natural harmonics on 14th fret:

                     (Part A)
e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------|
G|*------------------------------------------------*|
D|*------------------------------------------------*|
A|--14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-|
E|--------------------------------------------------|
    .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .  (dots represent 1/8 notes)
    ^^                ^^                ^^

The ^ are accents. Play these notes a bit louder than the rest. This part
has a ton of distortion, so these harmonics ring well.

These chords fall on the accents above (keep playing part A):

                    (Part B)

That repeats 8 times, then all instruments cut out except for a single
guitar playing heavily distorted and reverbed "volume swell" notes, and a
sparse bass drum. If you really care, the notes are a freestyle mix of A, F,
and D (string 2 fret 10, string 3 fret 10, and string 1 fret 10,
respectively). After a while, play part C and double it an octave lower with
Gtr. 2 ("Your shell is hollow / Your shell is hollow / So am I / The rest
will follow / The rest will follow / So will I / So will I"). Then the
outro:
