***************************PERFORMANCE NOTES***************************


**if you only have one guitarist and wanna play it live, just make the bass play the 
riffs”, and the guitar can play the “lead intro”
Most of the riffs can be combined for one guitar very easily, not hard to figure out.

for the chorus, if you only have one guitarist try this:
  |----------------|------------------|------------------------------------|
  |----------------|------------------|---------13-13-10--8---6-5--5-6-5-7-|
  |-7-7--3--5-5--7-|-7-7--3---5-5--7--|-7-7--3---x--x--7--0---x-x--5-5-5-7-|

alright i gotta fix some things, cuz it doesn't always come up right when you submit this stuff:

first--the song is in "Drop-Db" (if that's what it's called)
second--the end of the solo should look like this:

Slow bend |--hold bend (pitch:18,Eb)--|release
|-----------------------^---^---^-----------------------------------|
|---15^^18-------------15--15---15---r--------r(15)--15p13-15vvv----|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------pick-bent-note----------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

last--if you have any questions, the tab's kinda confusing, so feel free to ask me anything.
