Scarred  Dream Theater

I wrote this out with a little help from the chord markings in the guitar
tab. The intro and first few parts are written out for a 6 string bass
although they are manageable on a 4 string. Each distinct passage in the
music has been written out. At the end of the tab, I've listed the sequence
of each of the passages and when in the song they're played.
"Scarred" by Dream Theater from the album "Awake"
