                                Save Me - Unwritten Law
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By: Kevin Buzby 20/21 March 2005
E-mail: kjlee@bu.edu
AIM SN: kjlee2112
Tuning: Eb (EbAbDbGbBbeb)

Key:
<7>: Harmonic
9. : Staccato
~  : Sustain
x  : Play Riff x here

Chords used(relative to tuning--so a D is really a Db, etc., etc.):

 D    A   Bm    G    Em   Bb  D/A   C#5addA(not quite sure of the name, but this works)

-7----7----4----5----2----8----7----7----------------------------|
-5----7----2----5----2----8----5----4----------------------------|
------5---------3----0----6----5---------------------------------|

Notes:  Verses have a distorted electric playing with low volume and tremolo effect.
Also a lot of feedback is used during the verses using the A harmonic(7th fret, G string).
It's pretty straightforward, just use your ears and you'll see/hear what's going on.
Sounds like there might be a mellotron or something in there too. Be sure to have that
driving acoustic at the breakdown down--best part of the song! :)  Any
questions, comments, requests just shoot me an email.  Thanks!

Im not 100% but I think this song is in the key of B, not Eb. The notes and everything is right though. Just the wrong key name.

I'm pretty sure the key of the song is Db, not B or Eb. I only said that the guitar was tuned to Eb, not the key, but good observation nonetheless
