Band: The Rasmus
Album: Hide from the sun
Song: Sail Away
Tunning: Standard

You’ll see the first guitar in chords and the second guitar in tab.
In the Intro the second guitar has some effect that I cannot figure out,
I think it’s some clean or wah wah with light distorsion, I don’t know.
In the verses the second guitar is some clean or with light distorsion too.
Also in the choruses, the second guitar has another effect too, but I cannot figure out u_u.
Anyways, just try it!

its pretty much ok but 3 things

- i dont fing the mute notes you are puttiong in the tab
- there are some weird nothe in the solo but you are in the right scale
-the effect that he uses on the second guitar is a wah wah filter (activated your wah and dont use the pela and leave in a postion where there is no jumpoing of the notes) + a littel o "hall" (echo effect) i think
