Creating Something Out Of Nothing Only To Destroy It

Norma Jean

BAND: Norma Jean SONG: Creating Something Out Of Nothing, Only To Destroy It ALBUM: Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child
so ive noticed there is a general lack of norma jean tabs on this site, so i thought id write this one....probably my favorite norma jean tune. so yeah here goes...
palm-mute when necessary, its not hard to figure out when
also, my strumming patterns arent exact, but kinda give you an idea of what theyre doin and the end gets really crazy with lots of repition that would kinda be a waste of space to tab out, so you gotta listen. the riffs are here, but the breakdowns in the end just need to be pieced together a little bit
NOTE- theyre arent always two definite guitar parts, i think most of it is unison or double tracked, you could definitely play this with one guitar and itd sound okay...both guitars are really only distinctively heard in parts in the break downs towards the end..but whatev, i only split it into two parts where you really hear them.
TUNING- halfstep down and drop d...soooo (both guitars!!!) (low to high) Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb (C# G# C# F# A# F#)
intro... (your eyes, your concrete eyes) no guitar... then....

GUITAR 2- corresponds to guitar one's part...i put the 10 in parenthesis because it adds more to the discord of the breakdown, but isnt entirely pretty sure theres other crap in there too but its hard to pick out of all the noise, but this is basically it. and sorry, i didnt put the rythmn and the strumming pattern, etc. Eb|------------------------------------------------------------| Bb|------------------------------------------------------------| Gb|--------------------(10)------------------------------------| Db|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4etc.--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9etc.---4-4-4-4-4-4-4-| Ab|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4------9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-------4-4-4-4-4-4-4-| Db|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4------9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-------4-4-4-4-4-4-4-|
-quick pause-
once again, this part is in no kind of rythmn, and he adds the higher Db (5) at random parts, but if you listen youll hear it (1:55) "UNSEEN WAAAAR..." Eb-------------------------| Bb-------------------------| Gb-----------------5-5-555-| Db-0-0-00-0-0-000--0-0-000-| Ab-0-0-00-0-0-000--0-0-000-| Db-0-0-00-0-0-000--0-0-000-|

do the above line a bunch of times with slight rythmnic variations, then it pauses, then drums and bass like the intro, and its pretty much all feedback and sliding along the fretboard from there on out, which i was too lazy to tab, just turn your gain way the hell up, and youll be fine.
so thats about it... now all you have to do is piece the breakdowns together and voila.
sorry about my lack of organization
