Alright guys, here's a revised version of the tab that
Matt Maisel (Rark0097) posted. Credit for the song's
basic outline and for figuring out the 6 string tuning
goes to him. I am not trying to steal his tab but instead
elaborate on the foundation that he set up for us.

Oh, and if you haven't already, buy Diamond Eyes as soon
as possible! While you're at it, support Deftones' bassist
Chi Cheng in his fight to come out of a semi-conscious
state after a severe car accident. You can read about
his story, his recovery, and also donate at:

Head up, Chi!

Riff 2: (x2)

D----------------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------------|
F-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--10-10--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--|
C-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7---8--8--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--|
G-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7---8--8--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--|
C-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7---8--8--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--|

Play the Main riff twice, then play:

Riff 3:

D-------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------|
F-12-------9-------12-------14--------|
C-10-(x12)-7-(x12)-10-(x12)-12-(x12)--|
G-10-------7-------10-------12--------|
C-10-------7-------10-------12--------|

A short bass solo follows, then play:

D---------------|
A---------------|
F-10--10--7--9--|
C--8---8--5--7--|
G--8---8--5--7--|
C--8---8--5--7--|


Followed by:

Riff 2 four times
Main Riff two times
Riff 3 once


Riff 3 variation:
"The rocket's taking off..."
D-------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------|

C-10-(x12)-5-(x12)-10-(x12)-12-(x12)--|
G-10-------5-------10-------12--------|
C-10-------5-------10-------12--------|

The bit right after that is:

F-14~---14--14^~--12--

Then switch to Steph's riff:

D------------------------------|
A------------------------------|
F-9--9^-9^-7-------7~----9~----|
C-7--7--7--5-(x8)--5~----7~----|
G-7--7--7--5-------5~----7~----|
C-7--7--7--5-------5~----7~----|

Then you go into that CRUSHING outro:

D-------------------------0~----|
A-------------------------0~----|
F-------------------------0~----|
C-3p2-2-2--3p2-3p2-3p2-2--2~----|
G-3p2-2-2--3p2-3p2-3p2-2--2~----|
C-3p2-2-2--3p2-3p2-3p2-2--2~----|

After a while, replace the chord at the end with a
slide up to the 17th fret on the low C string. The
band does it live and it sounds awesome!

That's all there is to it, folks. Please feel free

Not a bad tab, better than the other one.
Bit difficult to follow at times, but I can deal with that.
Awesome song.

I'm surprised how little Steph uses his 8th string on this CD(which is made up for on "You've Seen The Butcher") but this tab is pretty good. There's a few parts missing, like the section from 2:18 to 2:41, but the riff is so easy I just played it off the cuff and had it right. It's also missing hat extra bar missing they throw on the outro to give that off-time kind of feeling. There's also little subtle backing parts that I don't are the guitars or samples of guitar, but nothing major is missing.
