    I thought some of you guys who like Christian Muenzner's guitar work may enjoy this. He posted this on his Facebook page, like 9 hours ago.

    "I still get a lot of messages from people asking about tabs from songs off Timewarp and Beyond the wall of sleep. I had started the project Timewarp tabbook a few years ago, but stopped again because other more important things came to the table (working on new music, recordings, bands, touring). It would be a lot of work and also would cost me a bit of $$ as I would be working with a professional transcriber. I'm still contemplating to do it for both albums, but first I want to see if there is still enough demand for it so that the project would make sense for me from an economic point of view. So who would be interested in those books?"

    I think these books can happen. For the individuals on this forum who are interested in these books, and I know there is, let's show/Email Christian how much we want these books.

    Christian, if you're reading this, I have the Epitaph (Necrophagist), Cosmogenesis and Omnivium guitar tab books and would not hesitate buying more of your tab books. :cool:

    Thanks for posting this here!
    The resonance on FB was quite good, and I'm in touch with a professional transcriber from Berklee College of music who could assist me with the guest and keyboard leads or stuff I have not tabbed out yet and with the layout. I will calculate the costs with him and then I will consider if I'll start the project. Would definitely be cool to have those 2 albums in print as well.

    I'd like to request a spiral-bound style book in the vein of SheetHappens publishing.

    Right, I noticed from teaching that those make most sense.

    I'm a sure buyer as well. I've learned a lot from your playing, Christian, and it's made me a better player in the process.

    Hey guys, Christian posted a update a few days ago on the upcoming guitar tablature book for his second solo album, Beyond the Wall of sleep. From his Facebook page.

    "I know it's been a bit silent on that topic, but the Beyond The Wall Of Sleep tabbook is almost done! We are in the process of overseeing the material to correct potential mistakes and should be finished within the next 1 or 2 weeks, so the book will be available by early December most probably, just in time to be an ideal Christmas gift for some of you guitar nerds out there wink emoticon It will come with full backing tracks for each song. Daniel Martinez Del Campo and me spent many hours and paid a lot of attention to detail to make sure it includes all the correct fingerings 100% as they were played on the record".

    Is there even enough trees on earth to fulfill the sheer amount of paper for all the pages the guitar tab book will require? :lol:

    Yes, Chris, we can't seriously wait for the helplessness of trying to play your stuff ;)

    Hey guys, thanks for the heads up and for your interest in the book! We're in the process of reviewing the layout, and then it will be ready for print. I'm planning to release it late November or early December.

    The recordings have been finished since May, but the mix got quite delayed due to Per being super busy with Scar Symmetry and some other albums he produced. The mix is almost done now though, probably 1 or 2 more weeks, and then I will start contacting labels. So unfortunately it won't be released in 2015 anymore, but I'm hoping for an early 2016 release. It's a great honor for me to work with such an incredible and original vocalist as Ian.
