Default "Shallow Grave" guitar tab

I never do guitar tabs, so be happy I actually did this one. Haha. The only part that's missing are the fill-in solos during the pre-choruses that Falcore plays. I noticed on live videos that I played them completely different than how he does. So I need to work on this. I will update once I make sure it's 100% correct.

Anyways, here it is! Have fun learning. If you got any questions, just post them here. I'll answer.

"Shallow Grave" by The Birthday Massacre
Album: Pins And Needles (2010)
Tabbed by Scalpel

Tuning: Rainbow: DADDAD, Falcore: DADGBe


Intro/Choruses played by both Rainbow and Falcore.
I also noticed that Falcore plays upstrokes during live performances of this song for the intro/choruses.
