Song: Rocket Skates
Artist: Deftones

Before I start, this tab is almost entirely based on Ponte506s Youtube video that I
on sharinglungs.com. He figured out most of the riffs, Ive just tabbed it for a six string
added in a couple of changes, so you can thank him for this tabs existence. It still 
some work though so if you have any corrections comment away.

Chi, get well soon.

On this last bar Steph plays something at the end of the (I think middle) strings, Im
entirely sure what (Im working with mostly poor quality/incomplete videos). I suggest just
this though:

Im not certain about the last bar off this riff (3). Looking at the video it looks like
puts little variations in at various points, but they all seem to be some combination of
Im pretty sure its one of the following- my personal favourite is the first one 
but feel free to experiment, they all sound good.

Riff 4
Same thing goes for the parts of this riff beginning with a 6p0, Ive tabbed out what I
it is below. Im more certain about this than Riff 3 however.

        (e)(q)(q)(q)(q)
   e e e q  e  q  q  q   x3  e e e e e e e e e e e e

P.M.        -  -  -  -


Order:
Riff 1: x6
Riff 2.1
Riff 2.2
Riff 2.1
Riff 2.3
Riff 3: x4
Riff 4: x2
Riff 2.1
Riff 2.2
Riff 2.1
Riff 2.3
Riff 3: x4
Riff 4: x2
Riff 2.1
Riff 2.2
Riff 2.1
Riff 2.3 without the high strings played, followed by silence
Riff 3: x4
Riff 4: x2
Riff 2.1
Riff 2.2
Riff 2.1
Riff 2.2
Riff 2.1

At this point it may either go straight to 2.3 or 2.2, I dont know cause none of the
videos that Ive seen capture the ending – if someone knows then let me know, same goes for
corrections or if you know the specifics of Riff 3. I know the tabs a bit vague in 
but its my first attempt at tabbing anything and I think it pretty much nails it –
as said before, the credit is mainly due to Ponte506.

Couple of corrections (I wrote this tab before I activated my account, which is why it's listed as unregistered). First, to be clear, the fifth string is a G, not F#. Second, the open high strings on riff 2.2 really don't sound right, I've taken instead to playing a couple of these:

D|14
A|14
E|12
