Brand New - Guernica tab

Okay, so if you listen to Brand New, you know this is one of the lesser known, better
songs theyve created. This is the way I play it, and I think its the best way Ive yet
heard it.

Artist - Brand New
Album - Deja Entendu
Song - Guernica
Tuning - Half-Step Down

. - mute
* - harmonic




Intro

eb]---12*--7*--] These first notes are all harmonics. Bb]-------7*---] Gb]------7*----] Db]------------]Ab]------------]Eb]------------]
Verse The rythym part here can be played, and sound just fine, without the small breaks ive demonstrated, but I found that playing it this way goes alot better to the beat, especially with the drum. Listen to the song, im sure youll key in on what im talking about.

Pre-Chorus This part is a little tricky when you first get it, and lots of tabs have different ways of showing this little section. I think this one best fits the guitar part. Obviously, ince Im writing it.

Chorus Ive divided the chorus into two sections so its easier to read, and figure out. First parts just pure rythym and strumming, the second half is the one with the rougher ending.

Interlude This is the interlude, some of which is hard to hear among the screaming. Once again, ive divided into two parts, the first with the screaming..."Im not letting you cheack out, you will beat this starting now..." and so on, the second being the cleaner part after the chaos breaks, with..."Does anybody remember back when you were very young?"
