Coheed And Cambria - Year Of The Black Rainbow tab

Artist: Coheed and Cambria
Track: "Year of the Black Rainbow"
Album: Year of the Black Rainbow
Tuning: Standard Tuning

Tabbed by Larry Jones

This seems to be one of those songs that you can just jam to.
For some of the riffs, it is difficult to hear what is going on;
however, I believe this tab to be very close to what they are
actually playing.  Regardless, I'm sure that when they do play
this live it will be different than the recorded version. Enjoy
everyone!

Alt. Claudio Outro Chords:

I feel like sometimes I hear different versions of the above.  Feel free
to throw these variations in whenever because this is a jam song, where
improv seems very welcome.

Bend the 7th fret on the D string a half step up to simulate an 8; listen
for the timing and do it when you feel like it.

Claudio has the Theremin going for most of the outro, but I don't feel like taking all
the time to tab out a minor part.  There isn't a solid melody to it, it's mostly improv.
