The Dismemberment Plan - Academy Award tab

This is the angular guitar riff off one of my favorite songs by these guys. Despite this
being a heavily mathy period for the D Plan, you can think of this riff as being in 4:4
time. If you care more about this than me you can probably take the chord progression 
underneath from this.

Tuning: Standard

This starts are on an off beat, an eighth rest if you will. About 180bpm.


The unison bend is slightly out of tune. You want to the dissonance to show, this riff
has major 7ths, that F and G played at the same time, and the implied tritone in the
resolution. It's a precise riff, but play it a little sloppy too.
