Tab for guitar transcribed by Ben Wilkinson (benwilko_faster@yahoo.com)

This is the basic outline for the clean guitar part. There are other 
guitars being played with screwdrivers, and one of the basses plays 
high melodies. Not every chord I've tabbed is strummed. There are times 
when one isn't strummed, and times when chords are strummed more times 
than I have tabbed. Notes of the chords are plucked between changes, 
you can work out which ones :op Also, there is no strict tempo to begin with so 
basically it is being played freely and slowly. The first 1 minute and 
10 seconds is just a spoken word sample. I haven't tabbed the whole twelve 
minute movement, just the fantastic and intricate chords that are played 
throughout the first five or six minutes.

KEY:    p = pull off
        X = mute (with left hand/finger)
  eg -11- = fret eleven (not fret one then one again - no patronisation intended!) :oD

Repeat PATTERN FOUR again [07:17 - 07:48]


That's your lot! The overdrive kicks in now and the 
seperate guitar parts are harder to pick out. You get 
the idea though, eh?
