Narcolepsy
Tabbed by: Kevin Brosky (3EBdude)


This is the correct way to play Narcolepsy.  I was disappointed that nobody had
this on here so this is my tab.

First off, the tuning is: F# A D F# A E  (sidenote: this is also the tuning for Forget Myself)

It also should be known that this is played in all one part.  So it goes like
this for the intro/verse:

|-0---12-0--0--7-7-7-7-7-|-0---17-0--12--7-7-7-7-7-|
|-0---0--12-0--7-7-7-7-7-|-0---0--17-0---7-7-7-7-7-|
|-0---0--0--0--7-7-7-7-7-|-0---0--0--0---7-7-7-7-7-|
|-0-0-------0--7-7-7-7-7-|-0-0-----------7-7-7-7-7-|
|-0-0--------------------|-0-0---------------------|
|-0-0--------------------|-0-0---------------------|

That gets repeated several times.  Let the chords ring and you should be able to
figure out the timing from listening to the recording.

Then comes this part:

|-0-0-0-2-2-0-0-0-0-0-|
|-4-4-4-2-2-0-0-2-0-0-|
|-3-3-3-2-2-3-3-3-3-3-|
|-2-2-2-2-2-4-4-4-4-4-|
|---------------------|
|---------------------|
 "I try to keep awake..."

|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6/9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-|
|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5/8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-|
  "I can feel this narcolepsy slide into another nightmare..."

Then the distortion kicks in and you strum those beginning chords

|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-----------------|
|---------------------------------|

That's the basis of the whole song.  There is a lot that repeats.  The only thing
left I think would be the solo:

(Played only on the high E string, it goes pretty fast)

e|--12/17-17-17-17-17-7-7-9b-7-5/17-17-17-17-17-7-7-9b-7-5/14-14-14-14-14-

e|-12\7-7-9b-7-5/17-17-17-17-17--|


Ok, that should be it for this song.  If I left out some little bits and pieces,
it shouldn't be hard to figure them out using what I have hear.  Just listen to
the recording of it to get the timing and strum patterns down.  Enjoy!

While I know Kevin Cadogan used this tuning and so this tab is right, I think it's just as easy to leave the 6th string at E so you don't have to screw with your guitar's tuning as much. Then just play

7/10
