    I've always been ok with The Contortionist, but after Exoplanet, my view on them completely changed. This album has become one of my favorites of the year. I'm LOVING the riffing and all the stuff they use, and they really sound like a band I wanna take influence from, since they have pretty much everything I love (heavy shit, clean vocals, ambient parts, clean melodic guitars, and all that). So I guess I decided to start a thread for The Contortionist tabs, mainly for their Exoplanet stuff. There's a couple of their older songs tabbed out around. I could find a few if y'all ask, I know ultimate-guitar.com has like 4 or 5.
    But yeah, I'm currently working on Advent. Will post results soon.

    thanks for starting this thread! I really hope we can get the whole album tabbed. exoplanet is probably the best album to come out this year.

    Haha, well, it is up there with the top releases, I can tell you that.
    This song is pretty hard to tab out, I'll probably have a full, complete GP tab by the middle/end of this week for Advent. Someone should get working on some other songs :D

    I've got a "skeleton" of advent going. It doesn't have much of the arpeggios, at least the correct ones, but I'll try to get done with it asap. They play in Drop G# on 6s btw :p

    I'm only about a minute in, as I've just started college and am busy writing my own stuff. But as soon as I have something worth contributing I shall

    Also, Ultimate Guitar has some REALLY rough tabs of the old versions of Flourish and Oscillator. So anyone looking to learn parts of those should start there

    Bump, I'll try my best to tab out Oscillator. I love that song so much. Vessel is also one i'd like to try out.

    Tree...I am hearing the chord in Contact as something quite different to what you tabbed. Not complaining, just doesn't sound right to me.

    Bump.
    I really wish there was a larger effort going towards tabbing out their masterpiece of an album. What gives?

    I fixed the rhythm in the intro and got about 30 seconds of drums on the Ultimate-Guitar Oscillator Guitar Pro tab (Tabbed by DestructoX), here's the file if anyone wants to add on to it:

    I put in a little work everyone once in a while, but school keeps me incredibly busy. I put a decent dent in Flourished earlier today, but I'm still only about 1:30 in.
