Borealia - In Fragments And In Wholes

Song is downloadable for free here:
http://www.last.fm/music/Borealia/In+Fragments+And+In+Wholes

This is the first song recorded for my upcoming album of the same title.
This is a basic outline of the song, no lead guitar parts are shown because
I pretty much improvised all of them, so besides the fact that I can scarcely
remember exactly how they were played, the only really musically important
bits are the rhythm guitar parts.

Seven string in standard tuning throughout.
