NOTES:
------

The whole song is in E-minor (with additional notes to create the typical
	Metallica-like dissonance and aggression). Guitars are in standard tuning.

Be careful to play the rhythm precisely and mute notes where appropriate. Pay
	special attention to notes that are played 'staccato' (i.e. muted right
	AFTER they are played) in Rhythm Figures 1. The rhythm indicated above
	the TAB is only to be taken relatively within each section. Bars are
	only there to indicate phrasing and make the TAB more readable.
	Listen to the recording!

The slides down during the verse are played as follows: Strike the whole chord
	(including the 6th string), then slide only the notes on the 5th and
	4th string, without striking the 6th string again, while letting all
	three strings ring. The slides in the second bar of Rhythm Figure 2 are
	easiest to play with the left hand using the index on the 6th string,
	and ring finger and pinky on the 5th and 4th, respectively. (If this
	is too difficult to you, you can alternatively play the slides as
	pulloffs, playing only the notes on the 5th and 6th string.)
