This was a request from Jinsui Kanjou,

Tears from the game DRAMAtical Murder. This game was made into an anime but this song wasn't used in the adaptation. It was used as the theme of a bad ending in the Koujaku storyline.

When I heard this song I thought the vocalist sounded familiar and it turns out that Kanako Ito also sings the theme songs for Steins;Gate, Chaos;Head, Song of Saya, and several other games by Nitro+ and their anime adaptations.

The tab goes up to the start of the 2nd verse, omitting the guitar solo. Drop D, capo 2

I tabbed out some more of this song and it's more or less "complete". Added 1st guitar solo, Verse 2 variations, Interlude, Main guitar solo, all the way up to the Outro (which is half filler-rhythm). I only need to tab out the lead guitar during the outro and decide how much of that I'll work into the tab. Some of the solo parts I want to rework (especially bar 110. It's hard to make out the bass notes during this part so I improvised).

Updated again

Almost (pretty much) done. I more or less figured out bar 110 and got rid of the 6/4 bar (derped up and had too many notes in previous bar). I slightly reworked some parts to improve the overall flow, redid the chorus (decided to use the lower bass notes afterall), tabbed the outro, and added a nice power chord to the end (just didn't feel right just cutting off abruptly like the song does).

I'm fairly happy with it now, but I'm going to play around with it for another day or 2 to see if any more improvements can be made. Once I'm sure it's completely done I'll repost in the Submissions section.
