                             DESPERATE GRAVES - The Mars Volta

PLEASE NOTE
-----------

This tab is not 100% complete. And while close, it's not 100% accurate either.
Some idiot gave me 2 stars on a tab I made for Luciforms because it wasn't 100% complete.
With that tab, as well as this one, I am merely providing a starting point (and a solid 
at that)
for whoever wants to use it.

Here's a link to a video of me playing this tab.

1:09    *NOT EXACT*
God bless the person who can figure out the exact chords Omar is playing.

2:59    *NOT EXACT*
These are the "chords" during the breakdown. (When I turn the dial...)
Omar plays some lead with either heavy phase or wah.


Am   C   Dm   F   E (Repeat)

| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note

i think the chords at 1:09 are the A power chord twice then two F power chords then E flat. then G sharp and A. then the second time played it descends the A minor scale after the E flat chord
