When Jon Chang got the crazy idea to expand Compiling Autumn from a series of blog posts (my plan) to a short book (his plan), we talked about adding a few extras to ensure you all got your money's worth. Unfortunately, a lot of our plans just didn't pan out. Among our brainfarts was including a complete tablature for The Inalienable Dreamless. However, the printer just wasn't equipped to handle that.
Anyone who has read Chang's liner notes to the reissued versions of Jouhou and Original Sound Version knows that guitarist Rob Marton had a ... unique ... approach to tabbing out his songs. The various riffs were referred to as "grind parts" or "Slayer parts" rather than getting mapped out in conventional musical notations. Pity stand in Steve Procopio who periodically filled the guitar slot and had to make some sense of Marton's direction.
So in what is very likely a first, Discordance Axis have pulled together band-approved tabs of several songs from all phases of their career (complete with helpful/sarcastic side notes), which I'll be posting each Friday. And there's no better place to start than TID's infamous opener "Castration Rite."
