I'm tired of seeing wrong tabs of this song without the guitar solo,
so I took it upon myself to learn to play it properly.

Heavy
As performed on "Dosage"
Words and music by Ed Roland

Standard Eb tuning

All guitars play main riff twice in between each verse part and before thr chorus

   The chorus is kinda messed up because Ed, Dean, and Ross are all playing
   different parts.  I usually play Dean's part.

All guitars play their verse parts, but during the main riff, Ross plays the new interlude

Very, very, very close. I gave a 5 anyways. Solo seems a little long and Ross's part for the chorus is a little off. But overall, excellent.

the main riff is not right....youre missing the 4 on the low E (Eb) string. after the palm muting and the pull off on 5
of the A string, its 0-3-4-5-6-5 on the E. or you can do open and 1 on the A instead of the 5 and 6.
