Halloween Theme by John Carpenter guitar tab

I found this on the web; it's not by me, but I checked it to see that it's in the right key and is accurate enough to use as a starting point if you're trying to learn this song.

I'd like to say that I know for a fact that this is 100% correct, as I have the song on my
computer and I listened to it a ton to get all the numbers right. I love to just run through this
song as fast as I can, it's great fun for beginners, too.

Part 1 x2

Part 2 x2


-Guitar 2- (no distortion)
e|------------------------| This starts with the fifth repetition of part 1. Each strum starts and lasts through
B|------------------------| the whole repetition (like, 442 is played as one strum at the beginning of part 1, then
G|------------------------| 775 is played once at the beginning of the sixth repetition, and finally 886 is played
D|4-------7-------8-------| once at the beginning of part two). after you strum (just once) for part two, wait until
A|4-------7-------8-------| part one again and repeat.
E|2-------5-------6-------|


-Guitar 1-

Part 3
e|19-------19-------19----20-----| x2
B|---17-17----17-17----17----17--|
G|-------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|


Part 4
e|18-------18-------18----19-----| x2
B|---16-16----16-16----16----16--|
G|-------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|


-Guitar 2-

Part 2
e|------------------------| Play this the same as guitar two from above: first strum beginning at the start of part 3 and
B|------------------------| the last measure of part four with silence.
G|------------------------|
D|2-------5-------6-------|
A|2-------5-------6-------|
E|0-------3-------4-------|

-Guitar 1-

Part 3 x2

Part 4 x2

-Guitar 2-

part 2, same pattern as usual


-Guitar 1-

Part 5
e|14-------14-------14----15-----| x9
B|---12-12----12-12----12----12--|
G|-------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|

-Guitar 2-

Part 3
e|----------------------------------| Ok, surprise surprise, strum once for each repetition of part 5 (guitar 1) and just
B|----------------------------------| over again until you get to the ninth repetition, then we have silence (besides guitar
G|----------------------------------| 1, that is)
D|9-------12------14-------16-------|
A|9-------12------14-------16-------|
E|7-------10------12-------14-------|

-Guitar 1 & 2- ok, here's the deal, it's the same formula, so you should be able to do this on your own. it's always going to be guitar two starting on the fifth repetition (for part one) and then it keeps going like that with silence on the last repetition. something worth noting, i guess: at the end, with part 5, obviously only play guitar part 2 once through, then when it fades, there is not guitar 2. have fun.
