Dark Matter tab with lyrics by Porcupine Tree for guitar @ Guitaretab

Porcupine Tree – Dark Matter tab

From their 1996 album "Signify".

Guitar 1(Steven Wilson): EADGBe (Standard)
Guitar 2 (John Wesley) : DADGBe (Drop D)

-John Wesley does indeed play this song in drop D. Since there's no low D in this song, 
 I assume the reason is for more comfort playing the power chords. For this reason you can 
 play the 2nd guitar part in standard. Just move every note on the low E string down two frets.

-This song uses the time signature 7/8.
-This tab is based off the live version played on their DVD "Anesthetize".
-Chords shown using chord symbols are only played by the keyboards 
 unless told to be played on the guitar.
-This song can be soloed over in A pentatonic for beginners, and for more
 experienced soloists the chord changes are shown.
