                Pain Of Salvation - Idiocracy



It was actually a more difficult song to transcribe than I thought, as the intro riffs
two guitars playing what one guitar usually could, as well as the intense layering of
in the verses and choruses. I basically tabbed out what I could, so apologies if 
vital is missing. I know I kinda skipped the ending with the acoustic guitar solo and
but it's pretty buried in the piano, so I couldn't quite pick it all out.

Played on seven string guitar tuned (low to high) A E A D G B E

After repeating, Gtr. 1 hits a low A and then plays a fill kind of like this:
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|--7-7-8p7-7-8p7-7-8p7-7-8p7-7-7-7--|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
This fill reappears many times in the song, sometimes with an altered rhythm.

*Bend up to an arbitrary pitch somewhere around 1/2 step or 1 step from F.

Chorus
Both guitars clean, probably with piezo pickup.
(this part I'm still not 100% sure on, but this sounds correct to me)

There's probably a million more layers of guitar, but they're buried under vocals,
bass and percussion.


After repeating chorus:

with variations on the rhythm I'm too lazy to tab out.


Outro is all piano and a bit of acoustic guitar soloing. It's all based in the A minor
boxes at the fifth and tenth frets, and is quite buried beneath the piano, making it
to transcribe at this time.
