The Velorium Camper Ii The Backend Of Forever Tab

Song: The Velorium Camper II: Backend of Forever
Artist: Coheed and Cambria
Album: In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3

If you can't read it, put it in size 8 and cut and paste it to have 4 measures
per line. It looked kick-ass on my wordpad, but I had to cut and edit the hell out
of it to make it fit here. Sigh....this was made on a 20" screen!

Symbols
PM -  - Palm Mute
LR _} - let note ring/hold until line ends
 .    - Staccato
 p    - Pull-off
 h    - Hammer-on
 s    - Slide
 ~    - vibrato
 *    - Pinch Harmonic
 \    - slide out (hit the chord or note and just slide on down the neck till it fits
w/ the song)

TUNING: Standard (EADGBE)

The guitars are the same unless otherwise noted, as in the top is claudio's clean and
the bottom is travis's distorted unless I put something different. I think you can
figure out that it's 2 guitars w/o me making a grand staff. The numbers at the top
of each measure tell what guitar it is.

Intro: (Its in 6/8, BTW, for counting off or getting the beats right)

Okay, I think it's good to do this riff all in light Pinch Harmonics (not all the
way, just to give it that Squeal), but it sounds fine without it. But with the 
vibrato 3's in the measure below, they need to be strong.

Okay, after the last x799xx chord in repeats 1-5 there is a 16th rest. At the
end of the 6th repeat, substitute it for this last chord and add this one in a
new measure (its actually just one note in the measure, with a lot of resting
:P)

|-7-|-7\--------|        but the chording was almost all me)
