Here's some tab for metropolis pt.1.  I figured out most of the intro and that
neat part at 8:04.  More tab should be on the way if I have enough time to
figure some out.  Enjoy!

Metropolis Pt. 1
note : most 0's on the E string are palm muted but I am not bothering to 
notate that.  If a 0 is by itself, generally it is supposed to be palm muted.

I love this part, so I thought I would tab it out...

Sorry that the bar lines are kinda off, but there are so many time sig 
changes, that it is really hard to get it right...

This last part I'm not too sure about (I don't even know if it's guitar
or bass playing this...), but the rest should be pretty close.
