Fight Fire With Fire

First thing first, the other tabs for this song are from the TAB BOOK. I couldn't read or
even understand those tabs. And after hours of searching, I decided to make my own. Trust me
this is 100% correct and is EASY to read. This song kick ass. I put it as ADVANCED cause the
fast picking and shred solo. Once you get the riffs down, work your speed and your alternate
picking in the main riff (RIFF 1), as it is the fastest in the song. After the solo of course
:)


UPDATE: 31st March 2009, Acoustic Guitar is now Nylon (tried both of the versions at home and 
sounds better with nylon), also slight change at riff 1.

31st March 2009, Thanks to frantic saint for the heads-up on riff 5b.

31st March 2009, Added new SOLO BACKING and Riff 10b

31st March 2009, Review of tab.

27th May 2009, Thanks to insanelyangry for the edit to riffs 6 and 7

14th June, Upon request of shredder 12, the dual harmony has been separated nd a slight change 
to riff 10b thanks to Shelltide

Lyrics:

Do unto others,
As they've done to you,
But what the hell is,
This world coming to.

Blow the universe,
Into nothingness,
Nuclear warfare,
Shall lay us to rest.

Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear
We all shall die

Time is like a fuse, 
Short and burning fast,
Armageddon's here,
Like said in the past 

Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear

Soon to fill our lungs,
The hot winds of death,
The gods are laughing,
So take your last breath 

Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear

Fight fire with fire x8
Fight!
