Coheed And Cambria - Pearl Of The Stars tab

Artist: Coheed and Cambria
Track: "Pearl of the Stars"
Album: Year of the Black Rainbow
Tuning: E Flat Tuning

Tabbed by Larry Jones

I feel that this tab is very very accurate.  I included a lot of the strings and synth.  
also
watched several of the live videos to get the proper hand positioning.  The only riff that
I'm not 100% on is Travis' Chorus Lead; it is almost inaudible on the album, and hard to
detect during live versions.  However, I feel that it is very very close to what he actually
plays.  Have fun.

There will never be a one to take her place"

First Chorus: (0:52 - 1:32)


"When you go, I will know
Follow you to the stars
And when the world burns apart
There'll be a place for your car
I'd give you everything
If only I'd have known you'd take it
But you don't, cause you're you
That's why I'll always love you
My pearl of the stars"
