The Mars Volta - Empty Vessels Make The Loudest Sound tab

Empty Vessels Make the Loudest Sound
By The Mars Volta
Tabbed by: Kilikus (TinAguitar)
First Chord Version Tabbed by: Coca30stmMCRFan (Thanks for the starting point)


Tuning: Standard

This is not perfect but pretty close to both chord and melody. The guitar slowly adds 
melody during the 3 repeats of the verse, there are also variations that I donít have 
notated yet.
Enjoy :)
