Coheed And Cambria – The Velorium Camper Ii The Backend Of Forever tab

Song: The Velorium Camper II: Backend of Forever
Artist: Coheed and Cambria
Album: In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3

If you can't read it, put it in size 8 and cut and paste it to have 4 measures
per line. It looked kick-ass on my wordpad, but I had to cut and edit the hell out
of it to make it fit here. Sigh....this was made on a 20" screen!

Symbols
PM -  - Palm Mute
LR _} - let note ring/hold until line ends
 .    - Staccato
 p    - Pull-off
 h    - Hammer-on
 s    - Slide
 ~    - vibrato
 *    - Pinch Harmonic
 \    - slide out (hit the chord or note and just slide on down the neck till it fits
w/ the song)

TUNING: Standard (EADGBE)

The guitars are the same unless otherwise noted, as in the top is claudio's clean and
the bottom is travis's distorted unless I put something different. I think you can
figure out that it's 2 guitars w/o me making a grand staff. The numbers at the top
of each measure tell what guitar it is.

Intro: (Its in 6/8, BTW, for counting off or getting the beats right)

Okay, after the last x799xx chord in repeats 1-5 there is a 16th rest. At the end of the 6th repeat, substitute it for this last chord and add this one in a new measure (its actually just one note in the measure, with a lot of resting :P)
