Comments: Probably the most badass song on the whole album, and that covers a lot of ground.  I don't know many tabs I made from this album, but it seems like I must have tabbed like half of it by now.  Anyway, this tab came out awesome IMHO, and if you spot a mistake, it would be greatly appreciated by all those here at Rezendes Tablature Corporation if you pointed it out to us.  All comment can be sent to the assistant directional shift supervisor managerial vice president, Mr. Chris Rezendes at the aforementioned e-mail address.  Later, Cadaver Canines and Canine Cadavers.   Or something.

Now, right here they should have repeated Fig. 2 x2, but I think they messed up (although this might have been intentional as well) and they play it like this-

This part three times...

...and then this part once.
