Juz - Song #1 - Luminescence

I can’t remember exactly how I wrote this song but I was going through a bunch 
of midis and a couple riffs were gathering dust so I messed around and finished 
it off. It was by no means an accident :P

Note that the time signature is 5/4. Uhh, for those who don’t know what that is, 
it means 5 beats per bar instead of 4 (which is 4/4). It’s just what worked well 
with the song.

I play second guitar because I just prefer it. If you don’t like first guitar, 
then play second. Basically, lyrics are sung during the verse and the two 
choruses ONLY. If you’ve written lyrics please let me read them.

like shit.

REMINDER: email me if you want the midi that includes drums, bass, strings and 
additional guitars. This will help you understand the timing of the tune. No point 
trying if you don’t have the original version. PLEASE check my website under the 
Media section first. If the midi isn’t available then email me. (Contact info at 
bottom of Tab)

Intro - Double Guitars
Clean Electric - Backup (Guitar 1)
Clean Electric - Me (Guitar 2)

This is where the song originated from. Pretty much the rest of the song was 
formed around this riff except the wierd ending.

For the strumming, basically play the full chords, what I have written is what I think sounds cool. Note the following: --- is a 1/4 note - is an 1/8 note 0:40

Guitar 1 is playing the verse piece (guitar 1’s verse bit) 6x. It’s not meant to be insanely fast. When there’s 1 space between notes, assume the note is an 1/8 note. Listen to the midi for referencing. Add vibrato on long notes and when moving long distances on the neck a little bit of sliding sounds cool.. --- Guitar 2 has a clean tone --- NOTE: Whenever there is a combination like 12h13p12, play it faster than usual (1/16 notes).
