Coheed And Cambria - The Velorium Camper I Faint At Heart Acoustic tab

Coheed and Cambria – The Velorium Camper I – Faint at Heart (Acoustic)


-	Ok, this is the song that made me adore this band. Wouldn’t wanna mess up on 
it now, do I? So, if there are any mistakes, feel free to e-mail me (e-mail’s on the bottom).

-	If you’ve noticed, there are some changes in the lyrics as well.

-	There are certain parts here that I won’t be writing the chord strumming 
just the chords itself. It is understood in this tab that the chords I write are triads, what 
nowadays commonly mistake as “POWER CHORDS” (ex. A – 577XXX).

-	If there is a “P” under a given note/chord, it means it’s 
“L” means lyrics.

-	FYI, in the C (X355XX) - open string D & A (X00XXX) – C transition, you may 
the open notes to an A (577XXX). The latter one sounds lighter though...
