This Is A Call To Arms Prelude Tab

Song: Intro: This is a Call to Arms
Artist: Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution
Album: A Call to Arms
Written by Tomas Kalnoky

Tabbed by AG-247
Regular tuning

This is a great instrumental intro to the short yet epic B.O.T.A.R. EP.
Most of its elements mirror the next song on the album: Here’s to Life.
This is a very cool acoustic guitar song to whip out, from a band that IS all acoustic!

Enjoy…


Main beginning riff.
(I KNOW it’s violins and cellos, etc., but a guitar IS a stringed instrument, right?)


e----------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------------2---1-------
D------------2-------------------------------2-------------
A------3-2-0---5-3-5-7-5-3-0-----------3-2-0---------------
E--5-7-----------------------------5-7---------------------

B----------------------------------------------------------
G------------------------5-3-2-----------------------------
D------------2----2----------------------------------------
A------3-2-0------2----------------------------------------
E--5-7------------0----------------------------------------

Immediately after main part is finished, it’s just guitar with finger-picking and hammer-ons for 4 measures.
And the story goes like this:

e----------------------------------------------------------
B----0---0—-0-3p0---0h1p0----------------------------------
G--2---2----------2----------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------

(times 4)

Then, the singer comes in and guitar is:

e----------------------------------------------------------
B---3-3-3-3--1-1-1-1--1-1-1-1--1-1-1-1---------------------
G--2-2-2-2--2-2-2-2--1-1-1-1--2-2-2-2----------------------
D----------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------

e----------------------------------------------------------
B---3-3-3-3--1-1-1-1--1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1----------------------
G--2-2-2-2--2-2-2-2--1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-----------------------
D-----------------------3-2------3-2-----------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------

Then another guitar comes in with the other still in the background

e----------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------
G-------------------------1--------------------------------
D--2-0-----2-0--------2-3---3-2-0------2-0-----2-0---------
A------3-2-----3-2----------------3-2------3-2-----3-2-----
E----------------------------------------------------------

e----------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------------------------
D--2-2-0-0------0------------------------------------------
A---------3-3-2--------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------

Then back to singing, except with original fingerpicking lick

e----------------------------------------------------------
B----0---0—-0-3p0---0h1p0----------------------------------
G--2---2----------2----------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------

(times 4)

Then, this little change to stop

e-------------------0--------------------------------------
B-----0---0h1p0-----0--------------------------------------
G---2---2-------2---2--------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------

Everyone in, then when stops play this vamp twice:

e----------------------------------------------------------
B--0-0-0--1--3-3--1-0---0-0--------------------------------
G--2-2-2--2--2-2--2-----2-2--------------------------------
D----------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------



Finally, with sax playing it’s kind of a vamp:

e----------------------------------------------------------
B--1---1-3----3-1-----1-1-1---2---1-3---3-1---0---1--------
G--2---2-2----2-1-----1-2-1---1---2-2---2-2---2---2--------
D----------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------

That’s all!
