Swallow The Sun - Evael 1000 tab

Swallow The Sun - Evael 10:00
Tuning: Drop C


OK, this is how I play the song.

Now, I know this tab does NOT contain ALL the guitars (and there are MANY).
While not being as comprehensive as the Power Tabs and Guitar Pro tabs found here,
it does, however, contain all the lead guitar parts for the whole song
+ some background guitars as well. You can play through the whole song with this.

Also do note that according to the lyrics in the CD booklet, the beginning of this
tab is actually from the end of the middle song "Plague of Butterflies". But as the
songs are not separate tracks, but one, long song instead, I prefer to start it here.
If you don't like that, then feel free to cut the beginning of the tab away.

Enjoy!
