Song: When the Sun Sleeps
Artist: Underoath
Album:The changing of times

This song is in dropped D tuning
I'll just try to include the main riffs. There is a lot of extra
bits that the second guitar does.

first guitar does a picky bit aroud these chords E  D  E  C

The other guitar does this:
E                           
B-8-8-8-7-7-7(come in        8-8-7-8-7-10 (x2)
G             with this)

   (E)    (D)   (E)   (D)     (C)
The other guitar does this:

This is my first tab I've ever done but i know it's correct.

Underoath is awesome and if you learn to play their stuff you'll get better.
