------------------------------------------------------------- 
 
This is a standout track on the "Demanufacture" album.  It is decidedly  
different from most of the other songs on the album.  It is slow, moody,  
dark, and ominous.  Thus, it requires a bit of patience on the part of  
the guitar player.  You might be tempted to rush through this song;  
avoid that temptation.  Let the song breathe instead.  Let your chords  
and notes ring out loud and fade into the harmony of the other  
instruments.   
 
As your playing may need a little more space for this song, your sound  
may need it as well.  Try adding just a little bit of midrange to your  
tone.  You can also experiment with (if you have them) reverb or chorus  
pedals.  But be sure to keep the distortion very high (as always =) ).   
Control your playing, don't accidentally bend the strings out of tune,  
and take your time playing. 
 
Tune all strings down a perfect fourth (B, E, A, D, F#, B) 
 
LEGEND: 
	 
	*    -- palm-mute  
	H    -- hit-on 
	P    -- pull-off 
	~~~~ -- vibrato 
	A.H. -- Artificial Harmonic 
	N.H. -- Natural Harmonic 
 
Very slow (Largo, Grave) tempo 
 
Begin with near-inaudible whispers (presumeably Burton).  Shortly after,  
keyboards enter in and play the melody line (in Riff B).  Guitar  
abruptly slams in... 
 
Riff A: 
 
Let chord sustain and fade for quite a while (try to avoid feedback  
excessive, though, as this counters the fading effect which should  
occur)

Song Structure: 
 
Riff A 4 times 
Riff B 4 times 
Riff A and let guitar fade out to Burton singing over drums and bass 
Riff B 4 times 
Riff A and let guitar fade out to Burton singing over drums and bass 
Riff B 4 times 
Riff C 1 time 
Riff B 12 times 
Riff A 1 time, and let guitar fade out for good into a mass of keyboards  
playing the melody line and Burton's whispers. 
 
Afterwards, there's some ambient keyboards mixed with some studio  
sounds, but I don't think there's any guitar in there (thank goodness,  
I'd hate to have to transcribe what they're playing there).
