------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MY ASSASSIN - The Bled ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Album: Found in the Flood (2005) Tuning: D G C F A D Tabbed by: Jacob Fleming & Jim Dupre Email: wtf.was.in.that.danish@gmail.com
Very awesome song, can't believe it didn't have a tab yet. I've only got some of it so far but I should have the rest soon. You should get the main idea of it from this.
_____________________________
INTRO / MAIN RIFF
0:00 - 0:09
D-----------------|-----------------| A-0h1-0h1-0h1-0-0-|-0-0h1-0h1h3-0h1-| F-2---2---2---2-2-|---2---2-----2---| C-2---2---2---2-2-|---2---2-----2---| x3 G-----------------|-----------------| D-----------------|-----------------|
The fourth time, omit the 2nd measure.
D-----------------| A-0h1-0h1-0h1-0-0-| F-2---2---2---2-2-| C-2---2---2---2-2-| G-----------------| D-----------------|
This can be kind of a complicated thing to get a hang of. Basically, always keep the 2nd fret covered on the C and F, but only strum whe indicated. Spend the rest of the time hammering on the A. Also, the 2nd measure is a little fuzzy. Just screw with it.
_____________________________
VERSE
0:10-0:31
Repeat main riff.
_____________________________
PRECHORUS
0:31-0:40
D--------------------|--------------------------| A--------------------|--------------------------| F--------------------|--------------------------| C-2--2--4--4---------|--------------------------| G-0--0--3--3-------3-|-3(just jam on this chord)| D------------------1-|-1( )| x3
The second time just jam on mutes instead of the power chord. It's hard to tell just what's going on, so just screw with it.
D---| A---| F---| C-5-| G-3-| D---|
Listen for the rhythm.
After the 3rd time, one guitar plays this chord into the chorus:
0:41-0:42
D---| A---| F-10| C-9-| G-8-| D---|
_____________________________
CHORUS
Rhythm:
0:42
D-1-1-1-1-|-1-1-1-1-| A-1-1-1-1-|-1-1-1-1-| F-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-| C-3-3-3-3-|-3-3-3-3-| G-3-3-3-3-|-3-3-3-3-| D---------|---------|
0:44
D---------|---------| A-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-| F-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-| C-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-| G-3-3-3-3-|-3-3-3-3-| D---------|---------|
0:47
D---------|---------| A-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-| F-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-| C-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-| G-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-| D---------|---------|
0:50

(repeat twice)
Lead:
(enters on Rhythm's second time)
0:53 - 0:57
"Collapse, this is our last chance, there's no..."
D-12------|----------| A-----10--|-13-12-10-| F---------|----------| C---------|----------| G---------|----------| D---------|----------| x2
0:58 - 1:03
"...time for relapse, just listen for the Flood."
D-13-12--10-|----------| A-----------|-13-12-10-| F-----------|----------| C-----------|----------| G-----------|----------| D-----------|----------| x2
Tremolo pick these really fast, listen to the song for exact timing.
1:03
"If not us, can I just save you?"
D--------------|-12----------|----| A--12-13-12-13-|----13-12-13-|-12-| F--------------|-------------|----| C--------------|-------------|----| G--------------|-------------|----| D--------------|-------------|----|
_____________________________
BRIDGE
1:08
One guitar plays main riff twice...
D-----------------|-----------------| A-0h1-0h1-0h1-0-0-|-0-0h1-0h1h3-0h1-| F-2---2---2---2-2-|---2---2-----2---| C-2---2---2---2-2-|---2---2-----2---| x2 G-----------------|-----------------| D-----------------|-----------------|
...while the other enters on the second time with a D#5 chord:
1:11
"We must have been seduced by the ---"
D---| A---| F---| C-3-| G-3-| D-1-|
Listen to the song for the timing. It's not too hard. It roughly follows the vocal's rhythm.
_____________________________
VERSE
1:14 - 1:34
Same as before.
_____________________________
PRECHORUS
Slightly different.
D--------------------|--------------------------| A--------------------|--------------------------| F--------------------|--------------------------| C-2--2--4--4---------|--------------------------| G-0--0--3--3-------3-|-3(just jam on this chord)| D------------------1-|-1( )| x3
D---| A---| F---| C-5-| G-3-| D---|
Do this as before...
Then the guitar plays this chord like before, but for one more measure.
1:44-1:46
D----|----| A----|----| F-10-|-10-| C-9--|-9--| G-8--|-8--| D----|----|
At the end of the 2nd measure, the other guitar plays mutes:
1:46
D-----------------| A-----------------| F-----------------| C---------x-x-x-x-| G---------x-x-x-x-| D---------x-x-x-x-| 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
_____________________________
CHORUS
1:47 - 2:13
No changes here.
_____________________________
INTERLUDE
First, play the main riff four times, omitting the 2nd measure the 4th time (same as intro):
2:13 - 2:22 (with kickass drumsticks in the background)
D-----------------|-----------------| A-0h1-0h1-0h1-0-0-|-0-0h1-0h1h3-0h1-| F-2---2---2---2-2-|---2---2-----2---| C-2---2---2---2-2-|---2---2-----2---| x3 G-----------------|-----------------| D-----------------|-----------------|
D-----------------| A-0h1-0h1-0h1-0-0-| F-2---2---2---2-2-| C-2---2---2---2-2-| G-----------------| D-----------------|
Rest a measure, then play the main riff 12 times (while all the ambient snazz goes on), again omitting the 2nd measure the last time.
2:23 - 2:54
D-----------------|-----------------| A-0h1-0h1-0h1-0-0-|-0-0h1-0h1h3-0h1-| F-2---2---2---2-2-|---2---2-----2---| C-2---2---2---2-2-|---2---2-----2---| x11 G-----------------|-----------------| D-----------------|-----------------|
D-----------------| A-0h1-0h1-0h1-0-0-| F-2---2---2---2-2-| C-2---2---2---2-2-| G-----------------| D-----------------|
_____________________________
BREAKDOWN
2:55 - 3:03
Starts off with lead playing main riff 3 times:
D-----------------|-----------------| A-0h1-0h1-0h1-0-0-|-0-0h1-0h1h3-0h1-| F-2---2---2---2-2-|---2---2-----2---| C-2---2---2---2-2-|---2---2-----2---| x3 G-----------------|-----------------| D-----------------|-----------------|
While rhythm plays the D#5 chord, the same as in the bridge.
D---| A---| F---| C-3-| G-3-| D-1-|
3:03 - 3:13
Rhythm continues playing this chord while lead bursts into a nuts breakdown. I haven't gotten this yet, sorry.
_____________________________
CHORUS
Repeat the chorus, but replace the last part of the lead part with the solo.
_____________________________
SOLO

D--------------|-12----------|----| A--12-13-12-13-|----13-12-13-|-12-| F--------------|-------------|----| C--------------|-------------|----| G--------------|-------------|----| D--------------|-------------|----|
_____________________________
Yep, that's basically it. I have the missing part of the solo at home so I'll put that in later. The breakdown is still driving me nuts. Here's a rundown of all the sections for reference:
0:00 - 0:09 ----| INTRO 0:10 - 0:31 ----| VERSE 0:31 - 0:40 ----| PRECHORUS 0:42 - 1:07 ----| CHORUS 1:08 - 1:14 ----| BRIDGE 1:14 - 1:34 ----| VERSE 1:34- 1:46 -----| PRECHORUS 1:47 - 2:13 ----| CHORUS 2:13 - 2:34 ----| INTERLUDE 2:35 - 3:13 ----| BREAKDOWN 3:13 - 3:35 ----| CHORUS 3:35 - 4:00 ----| SOLO
Thanks to Jim for help with tabbing and The Bled for this kickass song.
