One of my favorite Maps and Atlases songs.  It is a rather difficult number, but it's
fun to play once you get it down.  Like most other tabs, listen to the song to get the
right (although don't expect yourself to be able to play along with it until you've
a few times).  There are a lot of hammer-ons and pull-offs in this, but it's pretty
to figure out where they need to go.  I'm positive that this is correct- it took me a
hours to tab this out.  I've been able to play a couple of shows with Maps and Atlases and
gone to a few additional shows, so I've been able to watch the bassist and get a feel 
how he does things.  Enjoy!

(For this next part, accent the first and second D4 to D0, briefly pause, then do the
that follows VERY FAST.  The riffs are mostly hammer-ons.  The next part comes in about 25
into the song.)

(Xylophone comes in- riff repeats twice, then the bass comes in again.  You should
to the song for the rhythm for this part, but it basically goes on the accents of the
riff.)

(Let the last note ring out.)

That's it!  Don't get frustrated too easily- this is extremely difficult and you need to
it many, many times to become proficient at it.  Good luck and enjoy!
