	  		Dream Theater 
Endless Sacrifice 
Train of Thought 
 
Tabbed by Matt Sells- 28 Dec, 2003 
 
Here is what I can figure out on this song. It is hard to hear  
exactly what each guitar/bass is playing when both of them are 
playing at the same time but I think it is pretty accurate. I  
don?t have the gigantic solo yet but I?m working on it. Tune  
to drop D (D, A, D, G, B, e) or it will be a lot harder to 
play. There are a few parts in this song where the beat gets  
a little? touchy? so just listen to it and play along. Have fun! 
 
h- hammer 
p- pull 
*- palm mute 
+- touch string lightly to scream it when you play 
/- slide up 
\- slide down 
g#- indicates solo/second guitar start 
 
 
This is the basic rhythm fig. played.

g1- Here is the part for the second guitar/bass 
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|-------------------------3-2-0----------------------| 
|------------5-0-1----3-----------0--1---------------| 
|-0-------------------------------------3--2---------| 
 
Play that entire part again (without the second guitar). the 
keyboard does it?s thing and then you go onto the verse where 
you play it a third time AND a fourth time. After that you  
go into the higher scale version of it. You might need to listen 
to the song to really get how it goes. 
 
|-----3-5-6-5-3-----6-5---6-5-----3-5-6-5-3-----10p8------| 
|---3-----------3-5-------------3-----------3-5------8----| 
|-0---------------------------0---------------------------|

|---------------------------------------------------------| 
 
|-5---10---10---|-----3-5-6-5-3-----6-5-6-----5-------3-5-| 
|---3-----------|---3-----------3-5---------3---3---3-----| 
|--------7----7-|-0-------------------------------0-------|

|---------------------------------|-----------------------| 
|-----------------------------5-3-|-----------------------| 
|-------------3-1-3---3-5---5-----|-----------------------| 
|-----------5---------------------|-----------------------| 
 
And now you go into the chorus 
 
|------------------------------------------------|--------| 
|------------------------------------------------|--------| 
|------------------------------------------------|--------|

|-0-0-3-5-0---0-3-5-0------0-0-3-5-0---3-3-3-5-5-5-|------| 
                                       * * * * * * 
 
|------------------------------------------------|--------| 
|------------------------------------------------|--------| 
|------------------------------------------------|--------| 
|-0-0-3-5-0---0-3-5-0--7+--0-0-3-5-0---0-5-7-5-3-|--------| 
|-0-0-3-5-0---0-3-5-0------0-0-3-5-0---0-5-7-5-3-|--------| 
|-0-0-3-5-0---0-3-5-0------0-0-3-5-0---0-5-7-5-3-|--------| 
 
|--------------------------------------------------|------| 
|--------------------------------------------------|------| 
|--------------------------------------------------|------| 
|-0-0-3-5-0---0-3-5-0?-7+--0-0-3-5-0---3-3-3-5-5-5-|------| 
|-0-0-3-5-0---0-3-5-0------0-0-3-5-0---3-3-3-5-5-5-|------| 
|-0-0-3-5-0---0-3-5-0------0-0-3-5-0---3-3-3-5-5-5-|------| 
                                       * * * * * * 
 
Next there is a short bridge 
 
|---------------------------------------------------------| 
|---------------------------------------------------------| 
|---------------------------------------------------------| 
|-0---------2--------5----------3--2----------------------| 
|-0---------2--------5----------3--2----------------------| 
|-0---------2--------5----------3--2----------------------| 
 
Play through the verse and chorus again adding the distortion  
in the verse at the right time, then you go into the big long  
solo. The only part of which I know is something like? 
 
|---------------------------------------------------------| 
|---------------------------------------------------------| 
|-------------9-------------------------------------------| 
|-------------8-------------------7-----------------------| 
|-------------7-------------------6-----------------------| 
|-0-0-0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-------------------------| 
 
?over and over. Hope this helps a little. I will try to get 
 it all done eventually.
