-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Alan Beaulieu
Email: ajb0429@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

This is a basic interpretation of the distorted rhythm guitar part of the song.

Key: D 

VERSE - Palm mute an open 'D' string, finish with various short fills ending in D.

Example:

  D5                                                          Short fill(*)

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
  
  pm ----------------------------------------------------------->let ring--->|

  "A gangster came to see my boy....to pay one more bill"


(*) Other fills: Various D minor Penatonic riffs, ending in D.  Go nuts.  Open postion (below)
   works best.

That's the basic structure. Use your imagination to fill in the rest. - AJB
