Jonnys Guitar
Tuning: EBGDGE

Ed/Thom Guitar
Tuning: EBGDAE

Intro (Ed) w/ Ebow/ Sustain Delay

Whenever you hear a droning noise in the background, it’s Ed playing around with this
while adjusting the volume on his guitar. It is played with an Ebow, but can be
for a heavily Reverbed and Delayed Guitar.

Ed/Thom Riff. Ed tends to strum the chords more loosely like below, but Thom seems tostick to strumming the chords without the mutes. If you are using this tab for a band withtwo guitarists though, I’d recommend using Eds way as it goes along with Jonnys riff a better. Also, I couldn’t line it up exactly, so isten to Song for the timing.

Thom strums the chorus chords and Ed plays Jonnys Riff over the solo:-

Continue to mash at that 17 while Thom sings the chorus again. The rest of Jonnys part impossible to tab because he his pitch shifter and pick scratches a lot, creating an impossible to tab sound. So for Jonnys final solo part, just try and stick to the main solo, but pick scrape and your pitch shifter a lot. Also, it sounds more like the original if you slide up and the neck a lot and play random notes. End on a G5 and pull off. | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note ===============================================================================
