Godspeed You Black Emperor - Storm tab

This tab is divided into two separate songs, for the first two movements in "Storm"

Each song is divided into sections that are comprised of various guitar parts
played either simultaneously or parallel to one another

One guitar part is divided into smaller sections to accurately show the playing
order and repetition

The movements after "Gathering Storm" are omitted, as they are made of piano and
ambient samples, and do not feature guitar compositions
