Title: A Toast to My Former Self
Artist: Project 86
Album: Drawing Black Lines
Chorded by/Tabbed by: Kazuki-chan

Tuning: Drop-D (D,A,D,G,B,e) (Although, it works well in standard tuning, too.
                               Just play the notes on the bottom E-string down
                                two frets. )

Im not very good at tabbing ( Im a beginner ), but I do have the jist 
of the song.

For the intro, ( this is hard to do on keyboard ), the heavy guitars
slide up from a D power-chord. Then gradually increase the  speed as you 
continue strumming ( this is a lot like "The Kickoff" by  Relient K! ).
Listen to the song to clarify.

D|0-1-2-3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10/11/12 He might go higher. Improvise!!


Main Riff: G,F,G#,G,F,G# ( repeat as necessary )

D|5-3-6--5-3-6--5-3-6--3-5-6---
A|5-3-6--5-3-6--5-3-6--3-5-6---
D|5-3-6--5-3-6--5-3-6--3-5-6--- ( Timing isnt just right )

Verse 1: Mostly the bass ( The guitar plays something. It could be the main
                              riff, but palm muted. It sounds pretty staticky.
                               If you have an FX pedal, try fooling around with
                                 that. )

Then after the lead singer ( Andrew, I think? ) finishes the verse, you play
the 2nd Riff:

The 1st guitar plays the main riff again, but the 2nd guitar plays the 5th in 
the same pattern; meaning: D, C, D#, D, C, D#

e|---------------------------
B|3-1-4--3-1-4--3-1-4--3-1-4-
G|---------------------------
D|---------------------------
A|---------------------------
D|---------------------------

Then the other guy sings, ( play power chords )
D, D#, D, D#

e|-------------------------------
B|-------------------------------
G|-------------------------------
D|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1
A|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1
D|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1 Repeat. He plays it at a pretty good speed.
                                  Just strum it with the song until you have it
                                  down.

then play 2nd riff again for Andrew again.

Verse 2: Repeat same pattern for verse 1

Repeat Chorus

Then it plays the awesome bridge. The 1st guitar lets the D power chord fade
out, and the bass does something funky... I dont know this part, but it
sounds like theyre playing the main riff again, but plam-muted ( just not as
staticky as it did in the verses ), and a lot faster.

Repeat the 2nd riff and youre done! Oh, wait! The guitar does some kind of a
slide thing at the end. But youre probably better than me, and you can figure
it out yourself. If you have any questions, comments, or anything else, please
leave a comment below. I know this pretty vague, but please try it. Again,
listen to the song. Thanks, you guys! God bless you.
