"Betrayal Is a Symptom"

Transcribed by Jim Bodenschatz (enevolaprime@yahoo.com)

*NOTE* For this song's intro, I have borrowed excerpts from transcriptions that
other tabbers have done and added a few things to make it as accurate as
possible. I didn't want to release this tab without giving due credit to those
who deserve it. Also, a certain amount of credit must go to Ed Breckenridge
(Thrice's bass player) for confirming that this song uses only half-step (and
not half-step/dropped C#) tuning. My sincerest thanks goes out to all of you.


1/2 step down (low-to-high: D#-G#-c#-F#-A#-d#)
