The Gathering "Sand and Mercury"
from Mandylion
tabbed by: Drew Schinzel, 7/15/99 

Legend:
-------
b bend
r release
h hammer on
p pull off
~ vibrato
/ slide up
\ slide down

Note: Listen for precise timing of chords and notes, I had to condense them
a little to save space. 

standard tuning

 riff 1                                     
|----------------------------------------|---|
|----------------------------------------|---|
|--4--------------------------------7----|-7-|
|--4--------4-----(4)(4)-5----------7----|-7-|
|--2--------4-----(4)(4)-5----------5----|-5-|
|-----------2-----(2)(2)-3---------------|---|
                                          
For riff 1, for most of the first two repetitions each chord is 
strummed once, for the last two reps they're strummed in a simple rhythm
which is easy to hear.


 riff 2                                                 
|---------------------------------------------------|-----------|

   Heavy palm-muting on the first three chords of each set of 4.

   4x                                  

Second time they use this riff, drop the second part


For the solo, again beware of the condensed note spacing.  Also note that
the bends are slow bends,
