Unlike most Cathedral songs, this one is played using a normally tuned
guitar (E A D G B E).


Opening Riff:

|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

The doomy verse:

Jennings tends to harmonize his riffs, I transcribed mostly the
main guitar.

The second verse is very much like the first one, with some minor
changes in the order of the riffs, and not the actual notes.


The following riff: (which goes under the little organ lead)

(semi palm mute)
(the stars indicates rhythm)

later, a second guitar joins with the same riff, only in 8th notes,
instead of 16th.


The solo:

Which is not actually a solo but rather a collection of "bluesy" feels.

second set of martian bossa nova feels:

The second riff under the solos:


|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|--4-----6------>-----------------|
|--4-----6------>-silence guitar--|
|--2-----4------>-----------------|


BTW: The solos are not very precise, but I think jennings improvises them
anyway so why not improvise yourself?

last riff:

|--2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2----6---------------5----------------|
|--0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0-------------------------------------|


The cosmic funeral ends with a double lead guitar jam on E...

Enjoy.
