# The Portrait by
# OCEANA (myspace.com/oceanafl)

# Tab by Hello Astronaut

The tab isn't quite complete yet and I'm stil working on this,
but just wanted to post incase people spot any mistakes that should be termited for the 
version of this.

On another note: this might be the trickiest Oceana song to play. Next to We Are the Messengers.

When this is done, I'm also gonna post a GuitarPro version of this.

######

SECTION 1: Intro (might sound off when played slowly, but it's still the right way to 
it)

(Riff below was pretty hard to figure out,
cuz in the recording the drums and vocals are a louder in the mix than the guitar,
so notes might be off, not sure)

SECTION 3: "Dear Father..."
This is where I got stuck. Anyone who can help, post it pl0x.
It's the section before the ambient stuff.

Pretty sure you've probably figured out the song by now, but i'll correct the part you weren't sure about.

I'm pretty sure that's right.. I don't write tab at all, but I'll probably try and finish tabbing this out and throw up my own version. Nice tab though, dude.
