                   Doom 2 - Running from Evil GUITAR TAB
                          Song by Robert Prince

                  Tabbed by auriplane (crystal@panix.com)
                                On 1/24/2009

This is the song from the first level, and is sometimes called "Entryway".

Unlike most of my tabs, I got all of these notes from the MIDI.  And,
there's already a tab on GameTabs for this based on the same MIDI, but
that user just put it into a program and auto-generated it.  I can't
really play the output of that program, so I decided to make my own,
using the MIDI as a guide for the notes, but choosing my own fingerings.

This song is divided into nine phrases.  Generally, I change left hand
positions at the eighth notes at the end of each phrase, because this is
the easiest place to do it.  In a couple places, I also put in open notes
where you can shift hand position.  I've marked hand positions with roman
numerals, like in my textbook (but I've never seen it on GameTabs before.
Hope that's not too weird!)  I put in a little explanation of these at the
end.

Standard tuning.  Guitar starts around 2:14.

Explanation of position markers:

    Since most tabs don't have position markers I thought I'd give a brief
    explanation of what the positions mean.

    Positions are based on where your middle finger is.  If your middle finger
    is on fret 2, that's position "I".  You don't count based on your index
    finger, which would make sense, because your index finger can stretch up
    one more fret.  Also, your pinky can stretch down a fret, too.  So, in a
    given position, you can reach 4 frets "normally", and 6 if you count
    stretching.  This tab is based on the way I play, and I stretch my index
    finger a lot more than my pinky, so I get a range of 5 frets normally.

    Positions used in this tab:

                    Normal          Reaching with index finger

        II          Frets 2-5       Frets 1-5
        IV          Frets 4-7       Frets 3-7
        V           Frets 5-8       Frets 4-8
        VII         Frets 7-10      Frets 6-10
        VIII        Frets 8-11      Frets 7-11
        IX          Frets 9-12      Frets 8-12
        X           Frets 10-13     Frets 9-13
