                         THE TEMPEST - Pendulum
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard

Saw you the other day
Looking so undermined
Acting like it wouldn't happen
Making sense of anything that you could find
Because it's just about to happen
And you'll be there
You must have known the storm was coming
When clouds appeared

May as well let the rain come down
And join the circus of people
While you're there


Beginning power chords

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--6---5---8---------------------------------------------------------|
D|--6---5---8---6---3-------------------------------------------------|
A|--4---3---6---6---3-------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------4---1-------------------------------------------------|

Play this a few times,

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--1h3---------1--------1h3---------1--------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------1--1-1-----1--1------1--1-1-----1--1--------------------------|

Then this, then go back and repeat.

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------3-----------------------------------------------|
E|--4h6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6---4---------------------------------------------|

This is the break, it leads into the initial power chords,

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-:-3-X-X-X-X--3-X-X--3-X-X-X-X-:------------------------------------|
A|-:-3-X-X-X-X--3-X-X--3-X-X-X-X-:------------------------------------|
E|-:-1-X-X-X-X--1-X-X--1-X-X-X-X-:------------------------------------|

As shown here:

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--6---5---8---------------------------------------------------------|
D|--6---5---8---6---3-------------------------------------------------|
A|--4---3---6---6---3-------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------4---1-------------------------------------------------|

Play these parts as many times as necessary, then this:
(The syncopations aren't exact, you can fool around with this)

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-:------6--6-X--6/8--8---------:------------------------------------|
A|-:-3--3-4--4-X--4/6--6--8--8-8-:------------------------------------|
E|-:-1--1-----------------6--6-6-:------------------------------------|

That, leads into this:

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-:----------------------------1--3-:--------------------------------|
A|-:----------1--3--X--1--3--4-------:-----------1--3--X--------------|
E|-:-1--3--4-------------------------:--1--3--4-----------------------|

At the end of the last repetition of the scale, it ends with power chords:

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--6---5---8---------------------------------------------------------|
D|--6---5---8---6---3-------------------------------------------------|
A|--4---3---6---6---3-------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------4---1-------------------------------------------------|

This again, play as many times as necessary:

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--1h3---------1--------1h3---------1--------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------1--1-1-----1--1------1--1-1-----1--1--------------------------|

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------3-----------------------------------------------|
E|--4h6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6---4---------------------------------------------|

After a few repetitions, it goes back to this:

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-:------6--6-X--6/8--8---------:------------------------------------|
A|-:-3--3-4--4-X--4/6--6--8--8-8-:------------------------------------|
E|-:-1--1-----------------6--6-6-:------------------------------------|

This ends with a very pad-happy outro jive, then into:
(feel free to make these into small power chords, if you think it sounds better)

This is also one of two parts a guitar (or multiple guitars) can play. This is obviously 
lower, bass-filled riff. This part is absolutely crazy, gives goosebumps every time.

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------4--3--6--------------------------------------------|
E|--1--1--1--3--4-----------4--1--------------------------------------|

This one can be played by a second guitar, for an epic final product :)

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-:-------------4--X--4h6--4--6/8--8--6-:----------------------------|
G|-:-------5--8--------------------------:----------------------------|
D|-:-6--8--------------------------------:----------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

Mix and match these two riffs.

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-:-------------4--X--4h6--4--6/8--8/9--6-:--------------------------|
G|-:-------5--8----------------------------:--------------------------|
D|-:-6--8----------------------------------:--------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

Something is changing
Bruising and taking
And I'm trying to find out what it is
When I fix her, she's breaking
Reason keeps escaping me
Protected, and built in like a cyst

I know that I can help you
I just don't f**king want to
And the feeling is stronger by the day
Say that I'm selfish
But I know you need this
And I'm just so sick of the chase

While you are letting your guard down
I will be letting myself go
While you keep running your ship aground
I will be setting myself alight

Too late, you dropped the drawbridge
You let the vampires in
You caused this sh*t to happen, and now you want out? x2

While you are letting your guard down
I will be letting myself go
While you keep running your ship aground
I will be setting myself alight
