Imperial Tab

IMPERIAL

-Hammerfall-

Music: Oscar Dronjak
From the album: Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken (2005)


Tabbed by Linus Olsson (Linuso@hotmail.com)


This is a nice little tune. Many people hate it, but I think it's
underrated, and it's lovely to play for yourself as a warm-up
exercise or just to kill some time.

Playing info:
* This song is played on an acoustic 6-stringed guitar tuned down
  ½ step (D#-G#-C#-F#-A#-d#, from thick to thin). 
* Oscar fingerpicks it all except the final chord, which seems to 
  be a downstroke strummed with a pick (though I could be wrong, of course).
* Note that the song is in 3/4 (three quarters), so be sure to
  count correctly (1, 2, 3...1, 2, 3...etc).
