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?):

Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

 

Intro and Chorus

First Guitar:

G gradual union bend *pickup note for next

cycle

A|--5-|---------------------------5---5----------5---------------------|

E|--3-|--3-3h6--3--3h6--3-----------------(5)b6--3---------------------|

^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 E 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.

 

 

 

Verse

First Guitar:

Gmaj Csus2 Gmaj

E|-----------------------3---------------------------------------------|

B|--------3------3--3----3r----------------0--3--1--------0--3--2------|

G|------0--------0--0----5a------------2/4-------2----2/4-------1------|

D|--4/5-----4/5--5--5----5k--------------------------------------------|

A|-----------------------3e--------------------------------------------|

B|------0--3--1--------------------------------------------------------|

G|--2/4-------2--------------------------------------------------------|

D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

 

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.

 

 

 

 

Bridge

First Guitar:

Gmaj or Cmaj Bb5 (last 2 times) G

E|-------------------------|-------------------------------------------|

B|-------------------------|---------------0-----------------0---------|

G|--4p2p0-0--------0-------|-3p2p0-0-----5-----3p2p0-0-----5-----------|

D|----------4/5--5---------|---------4/5---------------4/5-------------|

A|-------------------------|-------------------------------------------|

E|--------------------3----|-----------------3-----------------3-------|

 

Second Guitar:

tacit(maybe muted chords) Bb5 Gmaj

E|-------------------------|-1-----------------1---------------3-------|

B|-------------------------|-1-----------------1---------------3-------|

G|-------------------------|-3-----------------3---------------4-------|

D|-------------------------|-3-----------------3---------------5-------|

A|-------------------------|-1-----------------1---------------5-------|

E|-------------------------|-----------------------------------3-------|

 

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:

 

E|--5--5b6---7---------------------------------------------------------|

B|--6--6b7---8---------------------------------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

 

It sounds like they bend the whole thing (both strings). It's rather

difficult to get both strings to sound the right pitch.
