			     Ebon Coast - Andy Mckee
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: mike 
Email:guitarin41@hotmail.com

Tuning:

 - BEADF#B -

-Standard Baritone Guitar Tuning (Also works in EADGBE for standard guitar)-

Mckee plays this song on a baritone guitar, its longer scale allows it to be 
tuned much lower than a standard acoustic.

Baritones are expensive and rare. This song can be played on a normal acoustic.
You can tune down to BEADF#B (3+1/2 steps down i think) but this low tension on
the strings of a standard acoustic may cause some buzzing.

The song can be played just the same in standard tuning EADGBE on a standard 
acoustic guitar but obviously will be in a much higher pitch. 

I have tabbed out everything up until the bridge of the song (coming soon)

I realize some of the beat notes (x's and 0's on mainly 6th string) might be 
a little off. Just get the basic melody down and once you can play that then
try to add in the beat.

This song takes a lot of time to learn, i would suggest using this tab in 
conjuction with the Ebon Coast Tutorial Video that can be found using google 
video.

I also tryed to mark then end of certain sections in the song that are repeated 
by putting corresponding letters in parenthesis at the end of the section. 

Hell of a fun song to learn and play

Good luck

Key:
