			     SERENITY PAINTED DEATH - Opeth
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: siegmeister1
Email: asiegel@uga.edu

Tuning: standard

i tried to separate the guitar tracks when possible, but it's really
hard to discern what is what in certain parts, but everything should be 
there one way or another.  also, i tried to pay attention to whether
mike plays open or fretted notes (particularly in the acoustic parts),
and to no one's surprise he plays everything pretty much the weirdest
way possible, so simplify it if you want.

this part was the hardest thing to hear in the whole song, especially the 
last little bit, which mike definitely plays different live. so, i'm gonna
include my best guess of what it is in the recording, how i prefer to
play it with one guitar, and what it seems like mike plays live.
