Narcolepsy
Tabbed by: Kevin Brosky (3EBdude)


This is the correct way to play Narcolepsy.  I was disappointed that nobody had
this on here so this is my tab.

First off, the tuning is: F# A D F# A E  (sidenote: this is also the tuning for Forget Myself)

It also should be known that this is played in all one part.  So it goes like
this for the intro/verse:

|-0---12-0--0--7-7-7-7-7-|-0---17-0--12--7-7-7-7-7-||-0---0--12-0--7-7-7-7-7-|-0---0--17-0---7-7-7-7-7-||-0---0--0--0--7-7-7-7-7-|-0---0--0--0---7-7-7-7-7-||-0-0-------0--7-7-7-7-7-|-0-0-----------7-7-7-7-7-||-0-0--------------------|-0-0---------------------||-0-0--------------------|-0-0---------------------|
That gets repeated several times. Let the chords ring and you should be able to figure out the timing from listening to the recording. Then comes this part:
|-0-0-0-2-2-0-0-0-0-0-||-4-4-4-2-2-0-0-2-0-0-||-3-3-3-2-2-3-3-3-3-3-||-2-2-2-2-2-4-4-4-4-4-||---------------------||---------------------| "I try to keep awake..."
|-------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------||-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-||-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6/9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-||-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5/8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-| "I can feel this narcolepsy slide into another nightmare..."
Then the distortion kicks in and you strum those beginning chords
|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-||-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-||-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-||-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-||-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-----------------||---------------------------------|
That's the basis of the whole song. There is a lot that repeats. The only thing left I think would be the solo: (Played only on the high E string, it goes pretty fast) e|--12/17-17-17-17-17-7-7-9b-7-5/17-17-17-17-17-7-7-9b-7-5/14-14-14-14-14- e|-12\7-7-9b-7-5/17-17-17-17-17--| Ok, that should be it for this song. If I left out some little bits and pieces, it shouldn't be hard to figure them out using what I have hear. Just listen to the recording of it to get the timing and strum patterns down. Enjoy!
