I was reading though the forum and I saw that a lot of people
requested this song to be tabbed, and I figured that it seemed easy
enough to tab the main basis of the entire song, and being one of my
favourite At The Gates songs I figured, why not? I'm not sure how the
Acoustic part goes yet, I may tab that out a bit later, but for now I
tabbed the main parts of the song. You don't have to use tremolo
really, but I find that it sounds best in most parts. It also changes
the sound a bit if you slightly mute the strings, but personally I
don't. Some of it is a bit tricky, listen to the song for the timing.
At The Gates use 7 string guitars, as do I, but I think they only
used the B string once here so I left it out. Stardard E will do
really. Also because there are about three guitars playing, I got a
bit lost. I only tabbed what I could hear clearest, therefore, all of
this is played by guitar 1. This is my first tab, I'm pretty sure it
is mostly correct, but if you feel that you can do better, then have
at it. Contributes are always welcome. Enjoy.

Played kind of in a triplet manner, but not quite. Play 3rd with
variation. Not quite sure on the last note here, but it seems close.

Just tremelo each note until the next begins.

Not too sure at all about this one, but it seems to fit. The last
note might sound a little more correct if you use a short vibrato.
Actually that 8 may be a 10, or not, I'm not too sure...

This is the only part where I think they use the 7th B string. But
I'm not sure. Play the 0's as a triplet. This is one of the parts
that sound better muted slightly.

Repeat Riff F x2
Repeat Riff G x2
Repeat Riff H x2


There you have it! That is the basis of the song! Pretty simple.
Have fun.

If anyone has tabs or can tab the song "Drained" by Hypocrisy from
the Abducted album, post it on Metaltabs, or...
PLEASE E-MAIL IT TO ME!!! Thank you!

Umm, and if you like Burzum and you could...
www.myspace.com/winterrealm this is my band, tell me what you think.
: D Thanks Again!
