Edge Of Darkness lessons Tabs too difficult? Try these video lessons and learn fast
                A few words before we begin.  I'd just like say that this was a
total pain in the ass to do, so you better enjoy it.  I spent many hours
working on this son of a b**ch.  As for the accuracy, I won't guarantee
sh*t.  It does sound pretty damn good though.  I had to show my support
for metal, so this is it.  Carcass is definatly a metal band.  Please
cool, like what you think is the ultimate metal amp or what you think
about this transcription. 

Playing note-
First make sure that you tune your guitar down 2 1/2 steps (B standard 
tuning).  There is nothing more terrifying then a guitar tuned down this
low.  And note that Carcass has two guitarists so there are two guitar
parts, I have put them both down but if there is only one guitarist in your
band, like mine you can easily mesh the two parts together.  just listen 
to the CD to figure it out.  And just remeber timing isn't specified to
much here.
