Tabbed by Austin (A Dead Fly)

I have split the tab into 6 different instruments:
The Piano right hand, the piano left hand,
the Viola, The Violin, The Cello, and the strings.


All instruments transcribed for guitar, written in 4/4

Piano
plays from 0:10 seconds until about 0:47 seconds
 
Right Hand
(some of the notes on the right hand are offset 8th notes, I have marked 
them with a star (*), you have to listen to get them perfectly though)
