A Certain Slant of light by "The Tea Party"
Off of the album "Splendor Solis"

There are many guitars playing in this song, and in many parts of the song 
up to 3 guitars are playing at one time.  Therefore I have not attempted to
tab out every single guitar line in this song.  Instead I have tabbed out
the main part and what will sound the best when played with only one
guitar, as I figure that you will probably just play it by yourself.  If
you ever attempt to play this song with multiple guitars, you can work it
out yourself, as it is not that hard and you have the main part of the song
to work with.

This song uses an uncommon tuning  low to high E A D F# A C#.
My advice with using different tunings is to use a guitar with a fixed
bridge.  It will make life lots easier.  Even if you practiced it on a
steel string acoustic, it would be better than trying to re-adjust your
tremolo, just to play this one song.


Intro and through-out verses, let all strings ring out.

This bit is after the line "Celebrate the one you love"
Its played quite fast.  Remember to use hammer offs and pull ons properly.

*Played by bass but sounds good when playing just with guitar.


There are about 3 different guitars playing in this section, I've tabbed
the main bit.

*All bracketed notes in the Pre-chorus B are strummed on a steel string
acoustic guitar on the original recording.  Listen closely and you will
hear it.

This is the section that no one else has managed to tab out before,
probably because its the hardest part in the song.  Played quite fast.

One Guitar plays the same riff as in the chorus while the other on plays
this solo.

note:  If you are really clever and have very quick fingers,
       This is what you should try playing as the

I'm sure these are the exact notes Jeff plays.

The song:

Intro.
Verse 1		As the colours fade away, my love.
			As the darkness turns to day, above.
			Celebrate the one you love.
Pre-Chorus A
Verse 2		And she says she has a friend, inside.
			Shows her everything she tries, to hide.
			Please stop the pain inside.
Pre-Chorus A
Pre-Chorus B	She don't know.
			Please stop her pain.
			I think she's coming down again,
Chorus		I hear the rain.
			She's coming down again,
			I hear the rain.

Verse 3		And she's dancing with the hands, of fate.
			While she's sleeping with the one, she hates.
			And tonight they celebrate.
Pre-chorus A
Pre-chorus B	(same as before}
Chorus		(same as before)
			And the rain still falls.
Bridge		
			Its falling down on me.
Solo
Pre-Chorus B	(same as before}
Chorus		(same as before)
Chorus		She's coming down again (x4)
			I hear the rain.
