Icarus Line - Caviar tab

Thanks a lot to Simon for writing all of this tab.


h - Hammer note
~ - Let the note ring, vibrato etc
\ - Slide down
/ - Slide up
bu - Bend up
x - Mute string with left hand

Guitar 1: I'm guessing this is Aaron, loads of distortion and weird effects.
Guitar 2: Alvin, weird trebly effect, with nuff reverb. Kicks in the overdrive for the break.


Intro/Verse Guitar 1 (play twice first time round, once second time round)

Ok, this bit is played twice at the beginning, with lots of pauses and bends inbetween and a feedback/bend type thing on the last G before it repeats itself. Vibrato on pretty every note. Gotta listen to the song to get the timing, I suck at tabbing so can't get it to fit. If you have the live(ish) version of this you can hear this part much better. Intro/Verse Guitar 2

It's all played with a cool trebly effect and a bit of echo. The very first couple of are kinda lost in the mix, but play the first note at the same time as the first note 1 plays and it should work out ok. Apart from that this isn't tabbed out in relation to Guitar 1 tab; so listen to the song. The one line of tab for Guitar 1 should fit into two of tab for Guitar 2... you'll get what I mean if you play it with the song. Oh yeah, to it even more confusing, you only play the second half of that bit the second time round; listen to the song. Chorus Guitar 1 Part A Part B

Pretty straightforward; but Part A sounds weird by itself, works with the track, honest. A is played while Guitar 2 is doing all the high trem stuff below, both guitars play B. Second time round play Part A four times, forget about B until the end. Chorus Guitar 2 Part A

Tremolo pick these notes a shitload, dunno how many exactly, do that twice. Part A

Same again, keep trem picking in the bend, listen to the song. Part A Part B

The last four notes, Part B, are played by both guitars, distorted. Now go back and everything, but when you get to this bit again, keep trem picking the E (5 on the B string) of playing Part B. This brings you into the hardcore mosh breakdown wicked cool bit. Break Guitars 1 and 2 Part A

The cool bit. Just play it loose and messy. You can replace the F (1,3,3 on the E with a mute, Aaron fucks about with this with mutes a lot live, in the live(ish) one 5,4,3 slide is replaced by mutes, sounds pretty cool. The order to play this is: A, B, A, B, A, B, A, B, A, A, A, B ( The A part gets repeated during the 'There's no side' bit. A couple of times they play the notes twice in the slide down, just listen to track) Guitar 1 then goes back and plays the chorus Part A bit 4 times, then Part B is repeated and that's it. I wasted way too much time on this tab. ORDER: Intro/Verse Chorus Intro/Verse Chorus Break Chorus
