"Snake Eater" (Main Title Theme)

Tab By: C64  cornhole@idgaf.ok

This is the song from the opening
sequence of Metal Gear Solid 3
"Snake Eater".  The tab is a lead
guitar thing based on the vocal
line sung by Cynthia Harrell.  All
notes represent her voice, except for
the orchestrated parts (1 & 22).


 Snake Eater was written by composer Norihiko Hibino for the 2004
 Hideo Kojima game "Metal Gear Solid 3" for Playstation 2.

NOTES:

 Spacing between notes isn't calibrated. I tried to sinc lyrics up to the
 corresponding notes but some may be off by a space or two, so feel it out.

 I'm not sure about the final orchestra note at the end. It probably needs
 a tweak. I didn't add any of the orchestrated fills during the song but
 they are pretty easy to figure out and add into the mix. I just included
 the intro and outro only.

 Expand or build on this tab or make an arrangement out of it and rewrite
 a more complex Snake Eater tab if you want. This tab is accurate and plays
 along well to the song on the Soundtrack.

LYRICS: What a thrill, With darkness and silence through the night What a thrill I'm searching and I'll melt into you What a fear in my heart But you're so supreme I'd give my life Not for honour, but for you In my time there'll be no one else Crime, it's the way I fly to you I'm still in a dream, Snake Eater Someday you go through the rain And someday, you feed on a tree frog This ordeal, the trial to survive For the day we see new light I'd give my life Not for honour, but for you In my time there'll be no one else Crime, it's the way I fly to you I'm still in a dream, Snake Eater I am still in a dream, Snake Eater
