From: "Nathan Buchanan" 
Subject: a/a_perfect_circle/judith.tab

Song: Judith
Band: A Perfect Circle
Album: Mer De Noms
Composer: Billy Howerdell
Lyrics: Maynard James Keenan
Tabed by: DeadSmurf (Nathan Buchanan)
Notes:
Standard Tuning

First of All I must say that all of this isn't ALL my own work I used Eric 
Salgado's (esalgado@ucsd.edu) Tab I found on www.taborama.com to get the 
basis of most of this tab.. I just didn't like the fact that it was drop D
and frankly it doesn't have to be (why bother changing the tuning on the 
guitar when it's not nessecary)  There were some parts that were writen 
incorrectly (as I could tell from the amazing judith video watching Billy 
play this song) And Yes Billy does use a metal slide.. but I don't have one 
so I left that part alone.
I left the original tab at the bottom to refer to (It might be right.. It's 
just that it didn't sound right to me.)
Oh and People.. I've noticed a complete lack of APC tabs on the net.. lets get
some going!

Dropped D tuning
"Judith" by A Perfect Circle

This is pretty close but I think APC uses a slide
on some of the guitar riffs. I just tabbed it
so that you dont need one.

Exellent. I like the tab mostly because you added drop D to it ( my favorite tuning ) but the tab itself is at least 99%
correct
