Wolves In The Throne Room - Wanderer Above The Sea Of Fog tab

Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog
Wolves in the Throne Room

Standard tuning
distortion, reverb, the works
this song is in 6/4, unless noted. and for the most part,
you're going to be tremolo picking. also, where you see an
"x" above the score, thats a measure marker.

Main riff

 x	     x           x           x
-------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------|
-5-----------4-----------------------------5--4--|
-3-----------2-----------2-----------------2--2--|
-------------------------0-----------------------|

eventually, this lead is played over that riff

 x	     x	  	 x	     x
-----------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------9----7----|
-------------8-----7-----------7---------------|
-5-----8-----------------8---------------------|
-----------------------------------------------|


then, there is this part that has a slower feel (same tempo, thought)
one guitar plays the E5s as i wrote here, the other
keeps up the strum patten from the other chords

 x	     x		 x
--------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------|
-5---5-5-5-5-4---4-4-4-4--------------------|
-3---3-3-3-3-2---2-2-2-2-2------2-----------|
-------------------------0------0-----------|

 x
--------------------|
--------------------|

-------5-5-5-4-4-4--|
-2-----2-2-2-2-2-2--|
-0------------------|


play that twice, then it keeps playing under the guitar
solo (which starts at about 2:19)
i doubt i'll tab the solo, suck at doing that...

after the solo that bit keeps up, until "royal robes of
green and red," at about 2:55
now, we move on to this (back to tremolo picking):

 x     x     x     x     x     x     x     x
---------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------|
-------------8-----7-----------------8--7--5--7----------|
-8-----------5-----5-----8-----------5--5--5--5----------|
-6-----------------------6-------------------------------|

then:

 x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x
---------------------------|
---------------------------|
---------------------------|
-------------7-------------|
-8-----8--7--5-----8-------|
-6-----5--5--------6-------|

and under that, a clean guitar plays:

---------------------------|
-6-----5--5--6--6--6---6---|
-6-----5--5--7--7--6---6---|
-8-----7--7--7--7--8---8---|
-8-----8--7--5--5--8---8---|
-6-----5--5--------6---6---|

play this riff three times, then hit and hold a D minor (x5776x)

This next section is in 4/4, until noted

synth lead:
---------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------|
---7--------6--------7--------9--------|
---------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------|

under that (strum)...
   x    x    x    x    x    x    x
-------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------|
----------------------------9-10-----------|
---7---------6---------7----7--7-9---------|
---5---------4---------5---------7---------|
---5---------4---------5---------7---------|

under the last chord, 2nd guitar palm mutes an e5

and now:
  x    x     x    x         x   x     x    x
------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------|
------12-10---------7-7-6-------9-10-10---------|
--7---10--8-6-------6-6-6--7----------9---------|
--5---------4--------------5----7--8--7---------|
--5---------4--------------5----------7---------|
		    |---|
		      |
		odd triplet thing

(i cant figure out that little fill that's in
the last measure there...)

then this twice:

 x   x   x   x
---------------------|
---------------------|
-----9--10-----------|
-7---7---8-----------|
-5---7---8-----------|
-5-------------------|

play the first pattern twice, tremolo picking the frist time, then
the second pattern twice, then move on to:
(back to tremolo)
 x   x   x   x   x   x   x   x   x   x
-------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------|
--------10-------9---7-------9--10---------|
-7-------------------8-------8---8---8-----|
-5-------8-------7-------------------8-----|
-5-----------------------------------6-----|

hold the last chord

back to 6/4
1x as only one guitar (and a drum roll),
then three times with the whole band

 x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x
---------------------------|
---------------------------|
---------------------------|
-------------7-------------|
-8-----8--7--5-----8-------|
-6-----5--5--------6-------|


4/4
 x x x x x x x x
--------------------------|
--------------------------|
--------------------------|
--------------------------|
-5-----5-8----------------|
-5-----3-6----------------|

4 times, then this lead comes in:

lead:
  x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x
---------------------------------------------------|
-10------------------------------------------------|
-------10-----9-------10--------9------------------|
-----------------------------------5--8------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
rhythm:
---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
-5--------5--8------------5--------5--8------------|
-5--------3--6------------5--------3--6------------|



this pattern plays twice, and then the lead ends on
the high A, while rhythm ends on the D5 chord (557xx)
