I give akaukal most of the credit for this tab. I've just corrected and
re-labelled it, it's all inspired from his tab. So big thumbs up for akaukal!


P.M. = Palm Muting
x = Scratching
|DS--PM| = A part played with Double Speed using Palm Muting. Me and akaukal
           disagree about these parts, check out his original tab if you want
|--DS--| = A part simply played with double speed
>>>> = Keep playing the note to every chord. You'll get it, it's just because
       of numbers like 10 or 12 messing up the tab.


No Intro in this song.

   Pre-Chorus: (Strange sound, shifts already at the last 3 notes of verse)

Pre-Choruses can be played without the small gaps in the rhythm, and you can
play it with chords if you want, but this is definitely what it sounds like.


   Chorus:

P.M.         |--DS--|

The 7 fretted notes that form E major chords are very faint and you can just
barely hear them. I believe they are there, but you can play straight chords.

Cool song. Uses lots of minor, suspended and major varieties of powerchords.
As you can see I did change some things from akaukalís tab, but his tab made
it MUCH easier for me to hear it all. So thank you very much akaukal, hope
it's okay with you that I use your tab like this.

Also Sleepwalking,
Daniel

Comments about this tab

akaukal - 2006-05-15

good job! it has everything that my tab missed. i'm not sure about your pre-chorus though. you have it only on one string and i actually think it should be on 2(Db, Ab). And if you use my catch phrase again, i'll kill you!(just kidding haha).


akaukal - 2006-05-15

And I'm 100% sure now that they do not use DS_PM. I'm sure they only use scratching there.


akaukal - 2006-05-15

Arrgh..I wish i could just edit my other posts! The Chorus doesn't sound right either. On the first chord, you have the higher d string on the 10 fret and then it switches after the mute to a 9. It should start on a 7 and then switch to a 9. I dunno...this isn't a whole lot better than my tab. I'm going to investigate a little more before I rate though.


Dani_Boy - 2006-05-15

Wait a sec, what do you mean with your last comment there? Could I have it in tab please, because it sounds kinda strange. Did you mean my tab is like no good, or what were you trying to say? Just curious. It sounded like you said my tab wasn't as good as you thought, then you started explaining how the chorus was supposed to be played, and it sounded like what I had tabbed. So what did you mean? =/

About the pre-chorus and bridge stuff, it does sound very much like one-stringed to me. They just use a very strange sound which makes it sound more "filled out".

About the double speed palm muting, I still believe it's there. I hate to argue with you all the time, so I'd like to drop this whole DS palm muting arguement.


akaukal - 2006-05-15

alright, i'll drop it. I think the begining of the chorus in my tab is right. that's what i meant before. I think your tab gets a 5 though! good job!


Dani_Boy - 2006-05-16

The only difference from your beginning of the chorus and mine is the "suspension notes" that I have to the chord, while you wrote a normal 7 fretted chord. It really doesn't matter all that much, but it sounds like the suspension is there. Let's not start a new arguement about it though, :) it's mostly an opinion of taste.


akaukal - 2006-05-16

Ok. If you have the album A Thought Crushed My Mind, could you check out my King of the Closet tab? It finally came on.


Dani_Boy - 2006-05-19

It seems good, but I haven't had time to check it out all that much yet. I have loads of homework before school ends... :(


Te eF Kay - 2006-05-22

Hi there!Im just being curious id like to here a swedish band!


Dani_Boy - 2006-05-23

You haven't heard Blindside? Hehe, I gotta tell you though that Blindside's not like any average swedish band, they are quite different. I think most swedish bands are pretty lame, but Blindside is one of the few good ones. There are pretty few songs they sing in sewdish though, it's mostly english.


akaukal - 2006-05-25

I've only heard a few songs by Blindside in swedish. The intro to Invert was in swedish and Shekina was mostly in swedish but other than that i havne't heard any.


akaukal - 2006-05-26

Okay, I'm going to re-submit this tab soon. I found out something when I was playing with a recording software. In the verses when they palm mute it(not just including the D-S ones), it's wrong. The use scratching in the same place on the fretboard. I found this out by recording only the guitar from the actual song and recording me playing the song. Then I transferred the recordings into WAV format and I examined the sound waves. They didn't match up perfectly of course, but the came very close except in the parts with the palm mutes. The sound waves with me playing the song were much stronger then the ones in the song. So I tried scratching instead of palm muting and the sound waves came much closer. I'll give you most of the credit in the tab of course, because you corrected all the stuff i missed in the last tab.


Dani_Boy - 2006-06-05

Uh, ok. So you mean they do NO PALM MUTING AT ALL then? Could be true, it doesn't sound palm muted in a super strong way, but you do hear a slight touch of the chord's pitch, it's not just "dead" scratching. So go ahead, make the tab. It might turn out really good :)


akaukal - 2006-06-05

The reason why it sounds mildly like palm muting is because they use scratching in the position of the chords. It sounds confusing, but it makes sense to me. I haven't submitted it yet, I'm trying to perfect every part. So check it out when it comes on.


Dani_Boy - 2006-06-11

sure, I'll check it


Dare - 2006-07-30

wow...you guys argue...but this tab is sweet.i think all blindside songs need to be tabbed...and then argued about. ;)


Dani_Boy - 2006-08-01

lol, Dare dares to be funny, hehe. I like that :)


Dani_Boy - 2006-09-23

I've almost figured out all of "About A Burning Fire", so I hope I can post it soon, hehe
