"Lines in the Sand" by: Dream Theater


This is one of Petrucci's best solos feeling wise, and it's full of great licks.
For the most part this tab is correct. There's just a few spots that are a bit
tricky to do, but this will definitely get the job done. Have fun,
 and PM me if you have any questions.

Standard Tuning: E,A,D,G,B,E

For the note that has the * before it, pick it moderately fast.

Key:

"sd" Slide down
"s" Slide
"p" Pull off
"h" Hammer on
"br" Bend then release
"X" Muted strings
"/" Slide into given note
"~" Vibrato
"pb" Pre-bent note
