			     Sequoia Throne - Protest The Hero
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: TheOmegaKitten
Email: yea right

Tuning: Half step down

Hey guys (and maybe girls) this is my first attempt at my own tab and let me start 
off by saying PTH
is the shizzit, most definitely one of my favorite bands for sure. I know theres a 
lot of other tabs on
this already (most of them wrong and unreadable) but i made this tab mainly to help beginner
players (not unlike myself) to master this beautiful piece of art. Also because 
when i tried learning
this song for myself most of the tabs already on here were wrong in some areas and right on in
others, so this like me putting it all in one place. I am almost %100 sure on the 
accuracy of this tab
and will bet your mother on it. Most of this was done by ear to be sure, but theres only so far you
can go just by going on ear with a song like this so this instructional video
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaFY01h0Pn0) I found was immensely helpful. Just to be clear, I
tried to make this as easy as possible to read for everyone, I split the riffs 
based on what I believed
to be the best way to learn this crazy song and did real hard to make the rhythm evident but if you
cant make one out I suggest referring back to video. So without further to do.....


It Begins: Play the intro here three times, note though that after the first time do a slide up the
neck from the fifteen 15\

Notice the rhythm change when playing the E power chords, again refer to the video for help on
rhythm. Basically its the same pattern as the one before, easy right?! By the way, when you reach
the x2, repeat this whole section not just that bar its next to and then finish up 
with the last riffs.

Youre probably wondering why I split it up this way (haha). Again refer back to the video for help
on rhythm.

I guess this is the solo? Ironically one of the easier parts to play.

The arpeggios look harder than they are, but theyre actually pretty easy to learn 
just hard to get up
to speed (I still dont have them up to speed). Just take it slow and hopefully the speed will come
with time, at least thats what im hoping haha.
