From the album The Edges of Twilight on EMI records
Transcribed by Mark Wiebe

Tuned from low to high  D G D G B D

This song has some other weird instruments in it but
this is how I play the guitar part (he probably uses 
a twelve string on the album.) This transcription is 
probably not to accurate and you'll have to listen to 
the song for the timing but I think it should give you 
the basic idea.

Song: SILENCE Artist: THE TEA PARTY Tabbed by: KRIST SMITH ----------------------- This song uses another cool tuning (I think it's something like open Gsus2/D or something): e tuned down to d B tuned down to A G left the same D left the same A tuned down to G E tuned down to D There are a lot of instruments in on this, so I'm VERY likely wrong. This is just MY interpretation. The timing is probably wrong (I'm not that good). It's just four dashes (-) for every quarter note. This is just a guess, but I think it's in 4/4 timing (please correct me). INTRO:

Heaven help me I feel I'm fading I should rest here for a while (INTRO riff again) VERSE riff over In the springtime I'm awakened as my spirits sieze the night Heaven help me I'm foresaken I should rest here for a while BRIDGE: (For the beginning, just improvise by playing assorted notes on the B (A) string and the two lower ones open [like the verse], but remember to keep them in scale-just fool around with it).
