Akira Yamaoka tabs for Theme of laura

Guitar tabs with lyrics

Track: Theme Of Laura
Composer: Akira Yamaoka
Album: Silent Hill V.2 Soundtrack
Tabbed by: Nick Brooker-Jones

This is my first tab and an easy one; the theme to the intro video of the
computer game Silent Hill 2.  It is best to play most of this song clean
with enough reverb to make it sound a slightly haunting.  A chord diagramA augmentedA vibrato pedal is
a good accessory for this song but not necessary if you want to just play
the main riffs.  I have included the other instrument parts for those that
want to add in the extra bits.

/  = Slide up
\  = Slide down
v  = Vibrato
PM = Palm Mute
h  = Hammer On
p  = Pull Off

Thanks to Matt Nikic whose own tabbing efforts provided me with two chords
and two notes that had eluded me.  His contribution is indicated as the
chord or note directly below the * marks.
