Guernica Tab

Okay, so if you listen to Brand New, you know this is one of the lesser known, better
songs theyve created. This is the way I play it, and I think its the best way Ive yet
heard it.

Artist - Brand New
Album - Deja Entendu
Song - Guernica
Tuning - Half-Step Down

. - mute
* - harmonic




Intro

eb]---12*--7*--]       These first notes are all harmonics. 
Bb]-------7*---]      
Gb]------7*----]   
Db]------------]
Ab]------------]
Eb]------------]


Verse

The rythym part here can be played, and sound just fine, without the small breaks ive
demonstrated, but I found that playing it this way goes alot better to the beat,
especially with the drum. Listen to the song, im sure youll key in on what im talking
about.

Pre-Chorus

This part is a little tricky when you first get it, and lots of tabs have different ways
of showing this little section. I think this one best fits the guitar part. Obviously,
ince Im writing it.

Chorus
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/brand_new/guernica_tab_ver_3.html ]
Ive divided the chorus into two sections so its easier to read, and figure out. First
parts just pure rythym and strumming, the second half is the one with the rougher
ending.

Interlude

This is the interlude, some of which is hard to hear among the screaming. Once again,
ive divided into two parts, the first with the screaming..."Im not letting you cheack
out, you will beat this starting now..." and so on, the second being the cleaner part
after the chaos breaks, with..."Does anybody remember back when you were very young?"
