Eye Of The Storm Tab

   
"Eye of the Storm"
by Blindside
About A Burning Fire (2003/Elektra/3 Points)

tabulture interpreted/written/transcribed by Zak Hall
zakhall@gmail.com

Note: this is my best interpretation of what is being played, and is probably in some 
inaccurate, and I am aware of that, however, I put this out here because I believe it
is enough to place out there, and is probably more accurate than most unofficial tabs,
because I am avidly against stupidly inaccurate tabs.


legend:
#'s (1,2,3...) = fret number / note to be held, not finger placed there necessarily
x =palm mute
x##...=palm mute fret number
|| =end of phrase/measure(s)
|||| = repeat phrase/measure(s)
(#) = harmonics (on that fret)
x(#) = harmonic strum
# + # = hammer-on
# * # = pull-off
@# = vibrato
# ^ (#) = bend note up (#) steps
# / # = slide up
# \ # = slide down
$# = sweep pick
[#] = optional (would fit, and/or sounds like it's being played, though not certain)
#______ = hold out

Tuning:
Down a half-step (low-to-high)
(Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb)
Note: For future reference, through out this tab, the strings will be labeled without 
flats, however they are still in the tuning above, this merely saves me, the tabber,
time.

****NOTE**** 
this tab has been corrected by the author

Verse Riff: (slightly distorted, then fully distorted)
("I think I've stayed for the last time...") starts on "stayed"
