Song: Switchback
Artist: Celldweller
Tabbed by: Sean999

There are certain parts in the song where the riff is played by just the bass and some 
but feel free to play it with some slight palm muting to get the same effect.

Another note is that there are three slight variations on the main riff:
D||------------------------------------------------||
A||------------------------------------------------||
F||------------------------------------------------||
C||-0--2--0--2--2--3--2--3--3--5--3--5--5--7--5--7-||
G||-0--2--0--2--2--3--2--3--3--5--3--5--5--7--5--7-||
C||-0--2--0--2--2--3--2--3--3--5--3--5--5--7--5--7-||
                    and
D||------------------------------------------------||
A||------------------------------------------------||
F||------------------------------------------------||
C||-0--2--0--2--2--3--2--3--3--5--3--5-----7--5--7-||
G||-0--2--0--2--2--3--2--3--3--5--3--5-----7--5--7-||
C||-0--2--0--2--2--3--2--3--3--5--3--5-----7--5--7-||
                    and
D||------------------------------------------------||
A||------------------------------------------------||
F||------------------------------------------------||
C||-00-2--0--2--22-3--2--3--33-5--3--5--55-7--5--7-||
G||-00-2--0--2--22-3--2--3--33-5--3--5--55-7--5--7-||
C||-00-2--0--2--22-3--2--3--33-5--3--5--55-7--5--7-||

The use of each variant in the song is very subtle, just use them where you see fit in 
of the first variant (though the third variant is generally played just before the second 
of each chorus).
