Eyes of Sand by Tonic on the Scream 2 Soundtrack
tabbed by Jeff Lee (immutablewit@hotmail.com)

This song kicks some serious ass. It's got the catchiest damn riffage in
the world. Only wish it got more widely distributed.

This tab sounds almost like the real thing, but I can't be sure.

My notation is a little dirty but this should help. Apologies ahead of
time.
Tuning: 1/2 step below concert tuning (go figure...why do you guys do
this ):

    ^chorus only (in intro, second guitar comes in after first guitar)

There's a revision for this riff at the end. It's important to put a
heavy
blues vamp on everything...throw in some vibratos and make those bends
as raunchy as possible.

During the outro they start to jam around and do lots of bluesy sounding
bends on the 5th fret on the A chord diagramE MajorE string.

This is all heavily syncopated so you'll have to forgive my clumsy
rhythm
marking.

The bass follows the root note of the chords...the "tonic" if you will.

Damn, I'm clever.

Second Guitar:
Follows the first guitar right through to the Csus2, and the plays palm-
muted G's. Listen with headphones to get the precise version. They sorta
double and quadruple strum some parts.

The bass in this song just follows the root notes of the chords (besides
the intro and chorus). Rhythmically I think it's just consistent eigth
notes.


Revision of main riff:

One (better-sounding)alternative to the union bending in the

chorus/intro is:

A chord diagramE MajorE|--5--5b6---7---------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramBB|--6--6b7---8---------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramG+G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramD MajorD|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramA augmentedA|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramE MajorE|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

It sounds like they bend the whole thing (both strings). It's rather
difficult to get both strings to sound the right pitch.

Almost there ...
