This song is different, because it is in a different tuning (the correct one)
and has been tabbed incorrrectly many times, so I wish to put my version up
which is very close to accurate (since we'll never really know until they put
Blindside songs in an official tab songbook).

"Eye of the Storm"
by Blindside
About A Burning Fire (2003/Elektra/3 Points)

Note: this is my best interpretation of what is being played, and is probably in some way inaccurate, 
and I am aware of that. However, I put this out here because I believe it is close enough to place out 
there, and is probably more accurate than most unofficial tabs, because I am avidly against stupidly 
inaccurate tabs.


legend:
#'s (1,2,3...) = fret number / note to be held, not finger placed there necessarily
x =palm mute
x##...=palm mute fret number
|| =end of phrase/measure(s)
|||| = repeat phrase/measure(s)
(#) = harmonics (on that fret)
x(#) = harmonic strum
# + # = hammer-on
# * # = pull-off
@# = vibrato
# ^ (#) = bend note up (#) steps
# / # = slide up
# \ # = slide down
$# = sweep pick
[#] = optional (would fit, and/or sounds like it's being played, though not certain)
#______ = hold out

Tuning:
Down a half-step (low-to-high)
(Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, eb)
Note: For future reference, through out this tab, the strings will be labeled without the flats, 
however they are still in the tuning above, this merely saves me, the tabber, time.


Verse Riff: (slightly distorted, then fully distorted)
("I think I've stayed for the last time...") starts on "stayed"
