Mars Volta – Back Up Against The Wall tab

Band: The Mars Volta
Song: Back Up Against The Wall
Album: Bedlam in Goliath
Notes:
I thought I'd tab this wicked song.
It's my favourite yet. Not because of it's length, but because if I were to play a TMV 
live, this would be it (well... Day of The Baphomets or a Fully Blown hour version of 
Gemini would be awesome too...)

The track can be found on the TMV site:

I did it in 444 moves!

Ending Chord: 1:30-1:33E|---|B|---|G|---|D|-2-|A|-2-|E|-0-|Staccato hit and stop dead.
And that the end to the shortest "full-length" TMV song ever! Legend: h = hammer-on p = pull-off ~ = let ring #b = bend up (in this tab its up a tone only) b# = bend down to that note. tr = trill (#) = note played with little emphasis. (Or by accident, on purpose) Enjoy...
