Mimicking Birds - Burning Stars tab

TUNING: standard EADGBE


Main Intro Riff:

It might not seem like there are this many notes, but the main melody is 
emphasized a lot while those other 
notes are kind of just like filler, you gotta figure out which notes receive the 
accents and more emphasis.
Also, your hand never moves while playing, only your fingers.  Use your middle 
finger to hold down the 
G (3rd fret on low E string) while your other fingers work with the rest of the 
riff -- you never lift up
your middle finger, and your other fingers hold the notes as long as they can before they 
gotta move to fret some other note.  Hope that all makes sense.

Intro Riff 3:

(This one fades in and then out real quickly, so although it's repeating you only 
hear it play a full cycle once)

D                                    G
And all the time it takes til you've had enough
D                                        G
Has shortened even in the last couple of years

But so too have the years themselves
Bm              A                    G                  
Themselves, themselves, the years themselves
