About Falling (Acuostic) - YouTube it :D

Ok, I know that this power tab ISN'T 100%, but i think i got the most part. Plus i used the other tab on this site as a guide. Enjoy!

one more thing: Tuning Eb, Ab, Db.... half a step down.

This is probably an incorrect way of playing the intro, but rather than play it like it is in the 1st post, I play it like this:

Code: Select all

eb|-----0----------------------------------------------------|
Bb|----------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|-7-7---7-------7--7-7-7---7-7-7-5-5-5-4-4-----------------| repeat
Db|-5-5-----(x3)--5-/7-7-7---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-0-|
Ab|-3-3-----------3-/5-5-5---7-7-7-----------2-2-2-2-2-5-5-0-|
Eb|-3-3-----------3-/5-5-5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-0-0-0-0-0-3-3-0-|


There's only one difference, and it's really small, but it sounds better in my opinion.
