Comments:

Strange Calm is one of Virus most accomplished composition
(some parts are 15 years old, from Czral saying), and my favourite song,
if I ever could distinguish one better than another...
I love them all.

Here the so devious harmony and sound textures create a really unique
atmosphear, mind does not go back to reality easily after this :-)
So any feedback or critic would be greatly appreciated!

Virulently yours,
Trognz

Special note about Part A:
The whole song is played on DGCFAD tuning (I believe), however it seems
that this part A only is played on tuning D# G# C# F# A# D#.
For convenience (you probably don't want to add/remove a capo while playing,
and of course you won't be able to change the tuning on-the-fly)
I worked on DGCFAD and could have something quite approaching.

Notation legend:
~ : Notes followed by '~' symbol should be let ring as much as
    possible while playing the notes that follows.
T : play the bass note with thumb
/ : slide
* : short 1/4 bend
P : pull-off
H : Hammer-on
