Guitar cover with tabs of The Gift of Guilt by Gojira, from their album L’enfant Sauvage.
Tuning – Drop C – CGCFAD
Redo of my previous cover as it’s been on my list for a long time!
The tapping section is fairly straight forward, just keep an eye out for the slide 13-15 -12.
To get the funky noises in the verses and bridges do a pinch harmonic on the 3rd fret and bend it up 2 tones, play another pinch harmonic while the string is still bent, then release, and finally hit the open string with a palm mute. Quick example at 5:50
Theres’s several time throughout the song where it will flip between triplets and 16th notes so keep an eye out for them too!
