Solo: (1:48) (“Bow!”)

Listen to the song to see how the E bass rhythm changes here by taking out a note.

m = mute, then play the 1.

Riff #7: (2:36) - 4 string.

The first bend can be done on the 1st fret, the second one requires an excessive STR stat to bend, so I put it on the 5 to end the measure.

Breakdown #2: (4:12) (“Shimmering surface”)

This part was the hardes to tab, and needs serious attention to detail, and needs updating. There’s a bass rhythm that hits more often with the bass drum this time around.

Tab story:

Ugh that took me a month to tab. Loved every minute of it. I watched several cover videos / teaching videos in F, and I just wanted to make this work on my 5-string in standard. I soon found that most of the song can be gotten-away-with on a 4-string. I started tabbing it until it became an obsession for a month :)
