I tabbed the main riff this way so you don't have to cross strings on the
8th (faster) notes. You can play it another way if you can't stretch.

That's pretty much everything worth tabbing.
The rest of the solos are way too fast.
On the last chorus just gradually go from closed to open wah with the main riff.

Thanks for playing! Give me feedback.

Sounds great :)

(If you could tab the rest of Bedlam in Goliath, that would be awesome)

Well there are some songs I probably will tab eventually off TBIG.
Whenever I get around to saying "Shit, what an awesome riff!"
I'll probably tab them ;)

Thanks!
