Damnation   Fates Warning






Guitar tablature for FATES WARNING's - Damnation
From the album 'Night On Brocken' (1984)
Transcribed by Vassilis Bekiaris (el94101@zeus.central.ntua.gr)

This is one of the easiest songs by Fates ,yet can trick the ear sometimes.
So this is the best i could. I've not transcribed the solo part and have not
notated any bends,hammers or whatever..but what do you expect?i only play piano.
Any notes enclosed by parentheses are what i am not at all sure about...
Have fun with the song and keep transcribing.
At the end there's one small correction to Down To The Wire 's transcription
by Jesse Rink..
Intro/the other guitar plays harmonics

About Jesse Rink's tab of Down To The Wire i think figure 3 sounds better(at
least to my ears) like this:
