This Apparatus Must Be Unearthed Tab

repeat x4, then for the next 4 bars, just pick one of the top strings
and slide your finger up the neck. don't worry about hitting a certain
fret it's pretty much random.

chorus:
     "i've been waitin for so       long      for"

repeat x8 played fast.


i'm pretty sure this next part is improvised but i've tabbed out the first
appearance of it in the song to use as a guide. also, know that this song
is played in the key of B minor. so don't memorize the tab!

                         "came here on time, hope that it's not too late."

go back and do the chorus again with distortion and then do the last part
again too.

the solo:
this consists of two guitar parts that play along the same rhythm. i
put both guitar parts on the same chart but that doesn't mean one
guitarist plays both of them. also, you have to learn the rhythm yourself.

rep'd twice. also, i'm sure this isn't 100% correct.
