Mastodon - The Last Baron tab

The Last Baron
Crack The Skye
Drop-C Tuning  Lowest to Highest: CGCFAD

Alright, so this is a very bare-bones tab in terms of picking/strumming 'casue its
from one i hand wrote for myself. I use this site alot and i figure what the heck, time i
something back to the community. I did my best to make it understandable, but i know I'm
some picking patterns/strum patterns, but all the notes you need should be there
for in the prog solo part. If you play along to the song you'll be able to easily fill
any missing picks or strums. This is my first tab posted on this site and i hope it helps
of people to learn the song. Just a heads up: this is a very hard song if you don't have 
open note hammer ons/pull offs down.

Intro (ive seen it played wrong too many time to not tab it out)
Play this in between each lower note

Hereís what youíve all been waiting for: Brentís impossible prog solo. I got most of it
out but some of the chromatic runs may be missing a few notes or could be straight up
Make up the parts that sound off.
NOTE: all chromatic runs are hammer ons/off. I didnít put them in cause itd look
too long

To get the sliding harmonic sound, just quickly pick from 5 down to 2 while sliding your
across the low E string (well in this case low C string)

Play that 2x
Play the 'Will he save me?' part
Country-esque riff 2x again
'Will he save me?' part one last time

Play the beginning quieter part all over again (its on the site as either a power 
tab or guitar pro tab)

Ending Solo (mostly, I didnít feel like tabbing out one part of it)

     Its not all one slide, its syncopated
