From: "Brett W. McCoy" 
Subject: TAB: Twist of Cain by Danzig

This is my first attempt at tabbing.  I picked this song because it was    
fairly simple (no solo!).   Listen to the song to get down the correct 
timings.  Riffs A and C especially have a very bluesy feel to them.

Please send any comments or corrections to bmccoy@CapAccess.org

(1) I'm not sure exactly what John Christ is doing here.  There may be an 
    overdubbed tone on this note.  You really need lots of distortion to make
    it squeal.  I think a cranked tube amp like a Marshall with a touch of 
    feedback does the trick!

(2) I think this actually sounds better just playing the 4th and 5th strings,
    which is why I put the 6th string note in parentheses.  It has a stronger 
    sound to it, since the flatted 5th isn't swallowed up by both the root and 
    octave tones.

TAB: TWIST OF CAIN (Intro) by Danzig
ALBUM: DANZIG


        This is my basic guesse that I did using an acustic
        guitar. This is my first attempt at play by ear so
        don't haggle me if it is wrong!

Only the TAB by Robert Flemming is right.
All the others are garbage.

on the "overdubbed tone" its called a chock and what you do here is have just a bit of teh pick sticking out of your fingers and when you play teh noteyou sorta slide the string along side of your thumb, its harder to do on the thicker strings so best start on the e string..
