Room Tab

   
The Living End - The Room (Cheney)
Albumn: Modern Artilery (2003)

No tuning required (E-A-D-G-B-e)

Legend:
^ = full bend (2 frets)
r = return bend
* = half bend (1 fret)
! = accent or emphasis
~ = hold bend/vibrato
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
p = pull-off
h = hammer on
pm = palm muted (|___| = in this area)

NOTE: Many parts of this tab exclude multiple strikings of chords,
other parts (eg. the first line) don't. If the tab seems misleading, 
make sure u listen to the song, or know it well, especially for the
solos; the timing and speed are not indicated so use the chord changes
below it to get the timing right. If u look closely its all there...

And thats about all of it.

Note: knowing Cheney, I've probably left out a whole lot of
vibrato/slides, so make sure to use tons in the solos ;)

Have any comments, suggestions? Email me: matty_pilot@optusnet.com.au

I think I got it pretty much spot on, but if I made a mistake,
ur welcome to correct it.
