Solitary Ground
Epica
Track number 4 Consign To Oblivion (2005)
Tunning; 1/2 Step Up, FA#D#G#Cf (or well CAPO ON 1st FRET, if you preffer)

Well actually the guitar is not that important on this song, the important thing here is 
voice and the orchestra,
Im giving you the chords for you o follow the song and the voice, is not hard, also you 
2 kinds of distortion,
one for the firs part of the chorus (a not so distorted one), and the other to use when 
sings "that I call home..."
(a lot of distotion). The song is basicly in Bm everything can be figured out form 
This is
a great song ant the tab works for both, the single and the recorded vertion.

Intro:no guitar, just flute and violin. (Here is the intro arrenge for guitar)

  []=Violin (from the second line and on, the violin plays the higher octave [play both 
the one you preffer])
  - - =Flute

Verse 1
Em  D       C         B5
Li..ving at different places
Em   D         C       B5
Eva..ding into various spaces
C              Em
My compass has broken
C              Em
I'm losing the way
   C       C/G           F#5    B5
An ongoing madness has led me astray

Verse 2
Em  D             C       B5
My  past breathes down my neck
Em     D         C             B5
And it seems now that all I can do is
C            Em
Go back to beginnings
     C        Em
When all lay ahead
   C        C/G          F#5        B5
A fading illusion now plagues me instead

Chorus: For this you can use the power chords isntead of the full ones. (E5 C5 D5 B5 
B5/F#)

Em    C   D              B5           Em      C
In... me there's still a place that fulfils me
D          B5          Em           C
A sanctity here that I call home, I run to
     D      B5
When winter descends
     C          C/G        B/F#
If I try, can I find solid ground

Verse 3
Em    D   C      B5
I follow elusive paths
       Em    D            C          B5
Oh, it seems they've been written in stone
        C             Em
And the door to a new life
    C         Em
Is closing so fast
   C        C/G          F#5          B5
Burning the bridges will not bring me back

A sanctity here that I call home, I run to
     D      B5
When winter descends
     C          C/G        B5/F#
If I try, can I find solid ground
