Song Title: Staring Through the Eyes of the Dead
Artist: Cannibal Corpse
----------------------------------------------

Here's my first attempt at a Cannibal Corpse song.  I figured I might as well start at the beginning of the album.  I'm not positive about all this, since the bass is mixed kinda low (what else is new).  I can't tell if he does that tapping thing in the beginning, or just the root notes, or somewhere in between.  It's one of these three versions, I'm sure, although he could be doing all three at different times.

Well, you take your pick.  One or more of those three.  I'll write it in the first way, since it's easier to write out.
