The Cabs

Key: A
Tuning:Standard W/  
. 

Amazing song from the, now split-up, experimental-hardcore/jazz-punk/indie/math-rock or whatever you want  
call them trio from Japan, who were signed to Zankyo Records. 

Notes: 
Pretty hard to play and to follow/memorize as there are lots of variations of the riffs and changes in time  
signatures, as well as the parts them self being pretty complicated to play (It's also kinda fast) 

I've tried including all of the variation even if that does make it more confusing and have tried to include  
as many of the time-signature as I can figure out, although I'm not the best with time-signatures so it could 
probably be counted other ways, tell me if I'm wrong please.  

Played through a slightly dirty/overdriven amp through a single-coil neck pick-up 
(It's either a Tele or Strat on the record) and either a boost or overdrive pedal, or even just keep the  
volume on your guitar lower for the cleaner parts and turn it up at the overdriven part. 

Order at the bottom of the page... (It gets confusing I know, sorry I guess?)
