			     Tongue-Splitter - Protest the Hero
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: FacetOfChaos
Tuning: Half-Step Down

READ THIS INFORMATION PLEASE~

Pay attention to the time markers for each section. Should help you to learn the song
and decipher it from text much more easily.

-x2  = play the line twice.
-x2S = play the entire section twice.
-Sometimes I will bracket off a part and add an x2 or other multiple behind it. That
means to play the bracketed part however many times specified.
-Also there are first and second endings used in this tab. They're a fairly
straightforward concept. Play ending 1 the first time, and ending 2 on the repeat. The
endings are marked with either (1. 2. etc) or (ending 1. etc)

-If any of the above is confusing, listening to the section of the song while looking at
the tab should clear up any problems. Protest songs are quite complex and I'll do my
best to keep the tab as clear as possible.
