My Inmortal
Evanescense
Track number 4 form Fallen (2003)
Tabbed by: Mariano Arnaiz
Anything to: marianoarnaiz@hotmail.com

This, as everybody know is a great song, is not for guitar completly, and hell it´s hard 
tab.
After a while and because new Evanescense album is coming out i disided to correct my 
tab
and it had some pretty seriuos erros, after listening to the song a while i correct some things.
Remember as this is originany for piano, there are things that you will fell werid cause 
piano
you can play the chords in many differnt ways, this is the closest to the real deal in 
have
fun with it.

About how to play the song pick the chords down (from E to e), up (from e to G or D), 
then
back down (from G or D to e), sometimes dont pick some of the middle strings (specially 
A).
Listen to the piano closely cause this are the chords. Also all the D in the song can be 
and
you can play with the changing of them (as the piano does).
