How To Destroy Angels – Ice Age tab

Song: Ice Age
Artist: How to Destroy Angels
Album: The Omen EP
Tuning: Drop Bb and/or Drop D


NOTES (READ BEFOREHAND):
I tabbed this in two tunings for this piece. Drop Bb (Bb, F, Bb, Eb, G, C) and a Drop D 
(DADGBE) for those people who don’t want to tune down.
And it’s basically all palm-muted (and most likely finger picked) unless said otherwise.
This is in two parts. The lowest Bb (or D) string is the rhythm, while the rest are the 
melody. Also, there’s a lot going more going on in this song, so this is just the 
skeleton. I plan to edit this some more and flesh it out later.

And then it fades out DROP D VERSION (one can take the low D string and tune it down to a Bb if you want to have the correct octaves)
