Artist: Blue Oyster Cult
Song: Don't Fear The Reaper
Tabbed by Spike

Hey, this song is amazing. To you it may seem weak from it's appearence.
But hell, once you've listened to it, you'll fall in love with it. There's
also cello in there, and as I don't play the cello I could only do the guitar bit.
It sounds good to me...If you don't have the song...get it!
...Oh yeah, I tabbed it at 4am, and I worked out the lyrics myself.
(This is on the Scream soundtrack)

                               "Seasons..."    "Nor do the wind..."  

[ Tab from: ]
  "Romeo and juliet..."   

All of the patterns are there above, if you really want to play this song.
I suggest you sit there and work which bits go where. I've gave you the
basic layout. So just listen to it and try and work it out. It's more complicated
than you'd expect. The pieces are repeated throughout the song in different orders.
It's complicated, but those are the main pieces.
