Borealia - I Dreamed I Was Elected President Of The Ocean

Listen at: http://soundcloud.com/borealia/i-dreamed-i-was-elected

Tuning: AEADGBE

This song has a pretty dissonant main riff, and the lead guitar parts are
largely ad-libbed, so take liberties in playing it. All guitar parts appear
with variations on each repeat.

Ending: Play low E string. Don't strum for final bars, but hit guitar against something causing E string to sound just lighter than being picked. Lead parts W/synth wah Intro: Sweep pick the strings behind the nut.

These two previous parts are played ad-lib throughout, with variations on bend range and rhythm. Sometimes, play very wide (2-3 step) bends on both strings simultaneously. Sometimes, play just the G string and bend as much as your guitar will allow it.
