Tuning - Whole Step (D etc.)

Notes: This is a bloody hard song to play and there's a lot to remember (as with most Vader songs). The fast picking parts are not accurate but listen to the song for timings. This is as closely tabbed as we can get, but feel free to Email us at any time if you have any improvements or suggestions. Hail Vader!!

Intro Riff - This is fast to play, and watch out for all the variations on the riff.
