Parabol And Parabola Tab

   
Parabol and Parabola - Written and Performed by TOOL 
Tabbed by "Josť Antilabido" (Dragonss@yahoo.com) 
Special Thanks: The Guitar Player article on Tool. Without it, this song would 
still be in Drop D. 

NOTICE: I recently learned that Adam plays this song with a very weird tuning, 
BEDGBE. You can locate the BEDGBE tab of the part below the Drop D part. If you 
are going to play this song live, I would suggest the drop D version unless you 
have two guitars. The tuning is a bitch to execute and adds very little to the 
song. You can play most of it with drop D. The only part that wont sound totally 
correct is the very end. 

NORMAL TUNING - DADGBE 
Can also be executed in BEDGBE.

B---8--8-8--8-8-8----10-10-101010/5-5-555 

If this sounds to weak to you, try this: 
D--12-1212-121212--14-14-141414/9-9-999 
E--10-1010-101010--12-12-121212/7-7-777 
B---8---8-8---8-8-8--10-10-101010/5-5-555 

Repeat part 1, end with part 3 and go into part 4, then do part 1 then goto the 
solo. 

Solo (Part 5) 1:35 
E---------------------------------------------------------------------10-9-- 
B------------------10h12--12-12-1212-----------------10h12p10------------10

E--------------10-9---------------------------------- 
B---------8-----------8--10-8---10^--8-7--5--8-7^--5^/ 
G--7--9--------------------------------------------- 
I am not totally certain on this part. But it is very close. 

I havn't gotten the 2nd part of the solo yet :(. But I promise I will. Make sure 
to add in some Wah-wah to the bends, it will sound a lot better.

Again, if that sounds to weak to you, try adding in the D string. Slide to 7 and 
back to 2 really fast. 

Play Order: Part 1, part 3, part 4

(After Adam plays this one or two times, he slides from G5 to B5)

Part 12 (Play it really fast)

(Check this one yourself. Im not too sure) 
After this, Adam does a PM version of the 2 parts 10 and 11 before going into 
the next part 

Part 14 
A-------------------5h7h5- 
D--0h2-xxx-5h7------- 

Drop BE Version 
D-----------------0h2p0

Try throwing in a PM if it doesnt sound right to you.  

Part 15 (Play it fast) 
A-----------5h7h5--------- 
D--0h2-5h7-------5h7-0h2-- 

Drop BE Version 
D----------0h2p0--------

Part 15 
D-xxxx--- 
A-xxxx--- 
D-xxxx-0h2 

Drop BE Version 
E--xxxx---- 
B--xxxx-3h5 

After a couple of times, it sounds like Adam takes away the hammer on and just 
plays E (2 on Low D) by itself. 

Part 16 (Try adding a PM to it if you don't think it sounds right) 
A---------- 
D--0--2--7-

(Wow, this one will sound DRASTICALLY better.)

B--0--0--0-0-00--3-3-0h5-0h5-0h5-0h5\6/5\6 
I didn't have time to do the last few parts after the song that sound like 
Parabol. Any help with that and the 2nd (Pitch Harmonics) part of the solo is 
welcome.
