White Bat In A Box by Melt Banana

White Bat In A Box chords by Melt Banana

Chords with lyrics

Melt-Banana
"Like a white bat in a box, dead matters go on"
>From 'Cell-Scape' [A-Zap, 2003]
This is all my own work.


Open Chord diagramG+G tuning (DGDGBD)
Overdrive on throughout except where noted
You will also need:
 Chord diagramA augmentedA delay pedal with a hold function
 Chord diagramA augmentedA pitch shifter

Note - this song is arkward in that there are very short delayed loops
which come in on certain chords. You CAN just ignore them, but if you have
a Boss Delay (or similar) you can replicate the exact sound by setting your
pedal to 'hold' - when the tab is marked 'loop', tap on the pedal as you
strike the chord and the sound will loop until you tap the pedal again
(the speed of the loop depends on how long you hold the pedal for...if
you've messed around with delay pedals you'll probably know all this)
In most cases in this song, you tap the pedal to stop the loop before
striking the next chord, there's one exception which i've noted in the tab.

/ = slide up
\ = slide down
bn = play chord with bottleneck
