Sevendust - Skeleton Song tab

Artist:  Sevendust
Song:    Skeleton Song
Album:   Seasons
Tuning:  Open B? (B F# B E A B)
Author:  Mike Smith (sublime56@hotmail.com)


Well, nobody has written a tab for this song yet (surprisingly) so I figured
I would.  I wrote parts for both guitars, so I hope it isn't too confusing.
Just listen to the song while reading the tab and it should play out.

I have no clue what the name of this tuning actually is.  I just put Open B,
but I think Clint and John tune this way for ease of playing.  It might be
the same tuning for Angel's Son, but I don't know for sure.

I know it's a pain in the ass to tune your guitar to this, but this is the
only way.  If you listen to the harmonics, this is the only tuning where
they will sound correct.
