Ashes Divide - Stripped Away tab

Band: Ashes Divide
Song: Stripped Away
Part: Lead
Guitarist: Billy Howerdel
Tabbed by: Colin Thomas Nichols

This is Billy's standard tuning but the bottom string is dropped two steps.

Live he uses a Black LP Classic.

This is only the lead part as it is arranged on the album - I'm not going to tab out
the extended live outro in it's completion, just the main idea.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED:
A slide

On the album, he plays the above riff several times until it fades out. Live, he plays a 
of the above, then plays variations of the following riff:

Bridge Pickup

C#|-5--5-5p3-3h5\-----------------|
G#|-------------------------------|
E |-------------------------------|
B |----------------0----7b-5h7\-0-|
F#|-------------------------------|
B |-------------------------------|

He also uses a slide and plays up the entire neck before doing variations of the slide 
earlier while the band jams on the outro riffs.
For this he uses the neck pickup.
