Dark Tranquillity - In Tears Bereaved tab

In Tears Bereaved
by Dark Tranquillity
from the album Skydancer
tabbed by Ken Hoffmeyer (TheOldMansChild@aol.com)

I have my guitar tuned to Eb (all down 1/2 step), although DT might play it 
in another tuning.  I know most DT stuff is in this tuning though.

ALMOST ALL OF THE SONG IS TREMOLO PICKED!!!

I know many parts could be played on multiple strings to make it easier 
(such as Riff B), but I like the sound of the wound strings better so I usually
stay on the lower strings.  Simply move the notes if you want. The timing in the 
tab is VERY approximated, listen to the song and figure it out yourself.
I spaced the notes out for a very general idea to help you along.  I hope the position
in seconds will be very helpful as I have always found it to be. Also, the first 
35 seconds is REALLY confusing with timing so be careful.  Riff J has a harmony that I am
too lazy to figure out, and I left out a part that is too hard to hear around the 3:00 mark.
But hey, it's better than nothing, right!?  I only proofread this once, could be errors still.  Oh, and I recommend viewing this in notepad at 1024x768 resolution or higher to make sure the lines don't wrap.

At 3:38, play Riff A VERY QUICKLY with endings 1 and 2, except add an open D string to the end, so the final ending look like this...
