Sinch - Bitmap tab

Sinch
"Bitmap"
From the album Sinch
Tabbed by Joe Costello (jcostello86@gmail.com)

This song starts off with 2 minutes of keyboards, random effects, and odd acoustic 
parts.
As a result, the beginning of this tab might not be accurate, but the guitar parts after that
should be fine. If anybody out there knows a better way to do the keyboard part, let me know.
Also, there's no real verse/chorus structure to this song, so it's pretty different.
I've tried to get the timing with the words in this tab.

Tuning: Drop-D (low to high: D A D G B E)

Symbols used:
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
. = palm mute

Intro: Riff 1 (actually keyboard, arranged for guitar here) Use a chorus effect for the best sound.e|--------------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------------|G|---9--9--9--7--7--7------9--9--9--7--7--5---|D|---7--7--7--5--5--5------7--7--7--5--5--3---|A|--------------------------------------------|D|--------------------------------------------|

Here, go back to playing the keyboard parts as shown till song fades out. Play Riff 1 2x Play Riff 2 once (fade out) *Once again, the acoustic guitar shows up as the song fades out. He's playing some notes the high e string. Not sure of the notes, so improvise. That's about it. -Joe
