CANDLEMASS
'Solitude'

tab by: adb666


Tuning: Haha, you want the tuning for this song, good luck.  It's somewhere
        between Eb and D, just turn every string down about .75 steps
Man this beginning was a bitch to figure out, don't know why, I probably made
it alot hard than it actually is.  This could be played with a 12 string, not
sure.

NOTE: I was informed that this beginning is played in the open Em position,
oh well. I'm too lazy to change this :)
Let all the notes rings out as long as possible
each note and chord is of the same length, say 8th notes.

|-Start tremeloing-on the G string and slide
|-up the neck towards the bridge. Around 14th fret move
|-onto to B string and continue tremeloing towards the bridge.  Around the
|-19th fret move onto the high E string and continue to tremelo towards the
|-bridge until you reach fret 22 on the high E string. Sit there half a
  second and tremelo the 22nd fret, then precede as the tab describes below
                          can't tell exactly how this part starts but I think
                          its close enough, so that it really doesn't matter!

*bend 10 up to twelve, while bent tap the 14th fret, then release it while the
10th fret is still bent up to 12, then move the 10 back down to 10 and bend it
back up to 12 again and vibrato.  Do all this is one nice smooth motion
without picking ever.

 *(kinda same as above)    (listen to song for exact pattern)
