Endless Sacrifice
Train of Thought

Tabbed by Matt Sells- 28 Dec, 2003

Here is what I can figure out on this song. It is hard to hear 
exactly what each guitar/bass is playing when both of them are
playing at the same time but I think it is pretty accurate. I 
don’t have the gigantic solo yet but I’m working on it. Tune 
to drop D (D, A, D, G, B, e) or it will be a lot harder to
play. There are a few parts in this song where the beat gets 
a little… touchy… so just listen to it and play along. Have fun!

h- hammer
p- pull
*- palm mute
+- touch string lightly to scream it when you play
/- slide up
\\- slide down
g#- indicates solo/second guitar start


This is the basic rhythm fig. played.

Play that entire part again (without the second guitar). the
keyboard does it’s thing and then you go onto the verse where
you play it a third time AND a fourth time. After that you 
go into the higher scale version of it. You might need to listen
to the song to really get how it goes.

And now you go into the chorus

Next there is a short bridge

|-0---------2--------5----------3--2----------------------|
|-0---------2--------5----------3--2----------------------|

Play through the verse and chorus again adding the distortion 
in the verse at the right time, then you go into the big long 
solo. The only part of which I know is something like…

|---------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------9-------------------------------------------|
|-------------8-------------------7-----------------------|
|-------------7-------------------6-----------------------|
|-0-0-0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-------------------------|

…over and over. Hope this helps a little. I will try to get
