                         A Past and Future Secret
                     Imaginations from the Other Side
                   Transcribed by Joao Pedro Magalhaes

     I took this from a performance at VIVA Metalla but it's pretty
  much like the album version.
  I think that he tune's 1/2 step down but I'm not sure.
  Always rythm guitar on top and lead guitar on bottom.

  Note: Capoeded at 3rd fret

  I'll just put all riffs first and then explain the music.

  part of it I prefer to improvise in the Gm scale. Just listen to
  the record to get the rythm.
