This tab is not very accurate, but its better than nothing. For now its
the only complete tab of Sweet Blasphemy, from beginning to end. That
said, if you have any corrections or better ways to play it, feel
free to tell me so.

This song is composed of 4 guitars playing in harmony in some parts
of the song, mostly in the chorus.This is how they're seperated:

           /LEAD 1
LEAD GUITAR
           \LEAD 2

      /RHYTHM 1
RHYTHM
      \RHYTHM 2

(The 4th time rhythm 1 repeats the above, its played differently,
like this)
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------6h7p6-------6------------------|
|----------------------------------------------9p7p6---9-6-7-6----------|

(At that same time, rhythm 2 comes in)
Rhythm 2

|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------6h7p6-------7-6---6------------|
|----------------------------------------------9p7p6-----9--------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

The chorus is then played the same way its played in the beginning.
After the chorus comes the 2nd pre verse.

Pre-verse w/ Solo 2:

|-0--0-----------2--2---4--4--------7---7-7---2---2-2-------------------|
|-0--0-----------2--2---4--4--------7---7-7---2---2-2-------------------|

The verse is played exactly the way its played the first time.

The pre-chorus is the same, except it is repeated only x2 instead of x4.

Then the chorus is played again, same as always.

(You're gonna have to figure out the strumming pattern on your own on
this one below)
Rhythm 1

Breakdown:

                                                    This is played at
                                                     the 2nd and 4th
Lead 1                                               repeats instead
|--------------------------------------------|     |----------------------|

|--------------------------------------------| x4  |----------------------|
                                  \_______/-------------------------------|

Rhythm 1 (Comes after Lead 1 plays x2)

|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-7-7-7-7-6-6-7-7------| x2
(All are palm muted, there is also a pickslide
at the last repeat instead of 77774477)

Then play the whole chorus, but twice this time, since its the last one

Finally, the Outro:

Rhythm 1
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------7-7-7-9-------------------------------------|
|--7h9p7-6h7----------------x-x-x-x--4-4\-------------------------------|
|------------11-9-7-9-5~----5-5-5-7--4-4\-------------------------------|
|------------------------------------4-4\-------------------------------|

Rhythm 2
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------111111-14--------------------------------|
|--11h12p11-9h11-9-7-6-7-------x-x-x--x---4-4\--------------------------|
|------------------------9~----9-9-9--12--4-4\--------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------4-4\--------------------------|
And thats it, I guess. Again, its not very accurate, but it
will be useful. If the strumming patterns in this tab confuse you, just
listen to the song, its pretty obvious where everythings at.
