Title: A Story About A Girl
Album: Gravity
Tuning: Standard Half Step Down (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb)
Transcribed by: Izzy

This is a great emo song off 'Gravity'. 
I think it oughta be their next single.

Key:

~~~ = Vibrato
(no.) = Natural harmonic
b(no.) = Bend note to match pitch of (no.)
r = release bent note to original pitch
h = Hammer on
p = Pull off
x = Fret Hand mute
/ = Slide down 


Intro riff (Clean electric, let ring)

there is a slight variation on the third time at the end of this riff:

Guitar 2 (Dirty/distorted electric) plays the verse twice.


I'll update this tab for the rest of the song soon, cuz i'm not a good 
lead guitar player, and this song has too many licks going in the background. 
Also, there's a solo somewhere, so I'll need more time. But you can survive 
with these parts for now!
