                             Vicarious Atonement - The Mars Volta
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:The Baphomet


Tuning:EADGBE

This is my first tab, and before you see look at it you should know that, this is not 
whole song. I left out a few scales and the guitaring in the background. The scales are 
to figure out however, and the background guitar I am still trying to figure out. (With the effects and all)

I tabbed this out for 3 guitars. Guitar 2's part however, is short.

D|--------------------10------10---------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|I put in 
lyrics because the guitar harmonizes with the vocals. These 3 riffs are basically 
untill:

       "Where is your face?"
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

4:49 Interlude:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---15----------13----------131415---------13-------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|Really, 
guitar 2 is playing, and most of it sounds very easy. I'll figure it out later. But this 
what the piano is playing.

The rest just sounds like improvisation, so I won't bother tabbing it.
