Song: Blood Red Sandman
Band: Lordi
Tuning: 1 whole step down (D-G-C-F-A-D)
Tabbed by: unspeakable.elvis@gmail.com

This is how I like to play Blood Red Sandman by Lordi. Haven't found any 
accurate tabs on the 'net so far, so here you go.

I gather from some Lordi forums that this song is actually played in 
standard tuning; however, Lordi's guitarist Amen apparently uses a baritone 
guitar under a lot of the parts in this song, which sounds great but is 
difficult to duplicate without some down-tuning. 

If some of the chords and timings don't make sense at first, listen to the 
song and keep trying. I play a lot of the power chords with the fifth added 
as the lowest note to make it sound more chunky.
