Subject: TAB: Face (adds-on) by Christian Death 



From: Nascent Virion.....

:) No body's perfect :)

Don't be pedantic!

Well normally I just play barre chords... but I think power chords on 

only 2 strings don't sound like POWER chords... 



> Okay, okay - I'll get to work on FACE - I'm just waiting for my copy of 

> 'Ashes' to be returned!!! These XD songs aren't quite as simple as Rosy 

> Stone ones y'know! I'm sure Valor and the other XD gtrists just improvise 

> half of their stuff...this makes it hard to tab correctly! 



Well that song is quite tight... 

My main problem is the little scale thing.. 



I mean it's start something like: 



A| -4--4-4-4---4--4-4-4---2--2-2-2---0---0-2-0-2--- (x3) 



then... 



A| -4--4-4-4---5--5-5-5-- 



at which point it does some twiddly bit which I can't find and then 

later it does this descending scale thing! Can you help? 

(When you get ASHES back of course)!
