Amon Amarth - Amon Amarth tab

Amon Amarth
"Amon Amarth" from the album: Once Sent from the Golden Halls

Transcribed by: Nick Beato (entity@netwide.net)

Tuning (High to Low): C G D# A# F C (Key of C#m down 2 steps)

I've tried to space the notes out right, but some parts are kinda weird.
If you aren't sure what i mean, listen to the cd. Also, some riffs have
lead ins that are at the end of a section, i transcribed them there!!!
(Part 3's 1st guitar is an example of this!)

Another valid point worth mentioning is the fact that gtr 1 is tremolo
picked EXTREMELY SLOW copared to most metal bands. it's more of 16th notes
so don't play it as fast as you can!

Part 1 (let all notes ring out)

C ------------------------------------------------------------------G ---------------5---------------*----------------------------------D#---6-----6-----------6-----4---4h6---4-----4-----4-----4----------A#------------------------------------------------------------------F -4-----4-----4-----4-----4---------5-----5-----5-----5-----5------C ------------------------------------------------------------------
* don't pick the G#(C#) twice, let it ring and then hammer-on Part 2

solo (rythem to Part 6 behind it) That should be about it. I'll add the solo later, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out. It's off the C# Aeolian mode (if in standard tuning) and focuses around the C# at the 14th fret of the 2nd string. Song Composition Part 1 (0:00) Part 2 (0:30) Part 1 (0:59) Part 2 (1:13) Part 3 (1:43) Part 4 (2:42) Part 3 (2:57) Part 4 (3:26) Part 5 (3:55) Part 6 (4:26) Part 5 (5:25) Part 1 (6:23) Part 6 (6:37)* Gtr 2's ONLY w/ the solo Part 6 (7:07)* Gtr 1's riff ONLY w/ solo (still) until fade...
