Guitar tab

Tabbed by : GiveMeThePiss

Tuning : Standard (6 string)
         Drop A (7 string)

That's a long song, their longest, but there's still not that much to play.
Let's start with part when Matt whistles. The strings are sometimes quickly,
sometimes a bit slower, you'll see how I wrote that. I'm pretty sure Matt
uses a Strat or some other guitar that has a bar on its bridge, because we
can hear that the chords are not "stable". It's like... Floating y'know ? :
e|-0-------3---1--------0---5------1---3---3------------5--10--------0-|
b|-1------3----1-------0----5-----3----3---5----1---6---5--10-------0--|
g|-2-----0-----2------1-----5----2-----4---5----2---7---5--10------1---|
D|-2----0------3-----2------7---0------5---5---3----8---7--12-----2----|
A|-0-----------3----2-------7----------5---3---3----8---7--12----2-----|
E|-----3-------1---0--------5----------3-------1----6---5--10---0------|

Now, you'll definitely need a slide for this part ! When you see "(2)",
that means you have to slide to the top of the neck :
e|------------------------------------------------------------------|
b|------------------------------------------------------------------|
g|-5->-9~--7->-5->-7~---->-(2)->-10~--10->-12~--9->-7->-9~---->-(2)-|
D|---------------------------------------------------------9~->-(2)-|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b|-(2)->-10~---10--10-10->-8--8->-10--10-10->-6~---5->-6->-5->-3->-12~---12-12-12-12->-6--6->-8-->-5~----|
g|-----------------------------------------------------------------12~--------------------------------5~-|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b|---------------5->-10~---------------7->-6->-7~-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
g|-7->-9->-7->-5-5->-10~---9->-10->-9--7->-6->-7~-----9~---->-(2)->-10---7->-5--7->-4----------(2)->-9~---5->-4->-5--->-2-|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------>-7~--->-(2)------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
(Note : the last note is fading out.)

For those who wonder about the background acoustic guitar, you just have
to play the exact same chords, but in this same rythm : tap, tap, tap tap tap.

And after nearly 3 minutes of intro, the verse finally starts :
e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
b|------------10->-5~--------------------------------------------|
g|-7->-9~-----------------7->-9~--------4->-5->-4->-5------------|
D|-------------------------------9~-------------------7->-5->-7~-|
A|--------------------------------------------------------5->-7~-|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|
                                      (--play quickly--)

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b|---------------------------------5->-6-----13-13-13->-10--14->-15~---11->-9~-|
g|-2->-4-----5->-4--7->-5~---2->-6--------------------------14->-15~-----------|
D|-2->-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b|-10->-5--------------5->-6-----(2)->-13~--13->-12->-13--->-10~---10->-15~-----------------|
g|--------9->-5--2->-6-----------(2)->-13~-------------------------10->-15~---13->-15->-13~-|

b|----------------------------------|
g|-2->-7---4->-5-----5->-10--7->-9~-|
D|----------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------|

And it's the end of the first verse ! Before we go for the heavy part,
I'll just give you the tab for the background acoustic guitar :

Finally, you're here ! The heavy part ! Well, I'll tab it for a 7 string
guitar, but if you don't have a 7 string guitar, I give you two solutions :
You can tune the low E to a low A, or if you have a Whammy pedal, play on
the low E, and use the Whammy effect "-5th". You'll get the same note as
the low A of the song. Begin this heavy riff by turning the volume on for
the first note :

Because yes, remember that Matt posted on his Instagram (with a video
during Drones making-of, 6/3/15) that he recorded this solo with a 6
string guitar. Which means that the 7 string guitar doesn't play the
solo for sure. It's only a rythmic guitar. So here's the lead guitar :
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b|-10-5-10->-13-12-10-9-5-9->-15-13-12-13-10-13->-17-15-13-15-10-15->-18-17-15-|

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
b|-13--10--13--10--13-10-12--9--12--9--12-9--13--10--13--10--13-10-|
g|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
(Note : don't forget to fast-picking of course !)

And now, the final appearance of the guitar for this song before the
piano comes in. You just have to hit the strings very quickly, and
slide quickly until the 20's. After it's slowly. Then, you just have
to hit the highest D note of your guitar (the 22) and make a vibrato
until it completely fades out :
e|-10->-20->-21->-22~-|
b|-10->-20->-21-------|
g|--------------------|
D|--------------------|
A|--------------------|
E|--------------------|

And you got it !
