The final track from Witchcult today. Played in B standard.


Riff 1: intro and verse
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|----7-----7-----7--7-5h7-7--5h7-7--|
|-----------------------------------|
|-5-----8-----5---------------------|

Riff 2a: the melody that plays straight after riff 1
|----------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------8b^-8p6--------|
|---------------------------5h7---------7-5-7~-|
|-5h7-7-7--7-5h7-7-7--7-5h7--------------------|
|----------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------|

Riff 2b: second part of the melody
|------------------------------------8h10-12b^-12-10-------10-8-10-|
|-8h10-10-10--10-8h10-10-10--10-8h10-----------------12-10---------|
|------------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------------|

Riff 3: chorus
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|-7--7--7--7--7-7\5-7-5-3--3-3br-|
|-5--5--5--5--5-5\3-5-3-1--1-----|

Riff 4: an alternate version of the chorus, played before the first solo
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|-9--9--9--9--9-9\7-9-7-5--5-8-8-|
|-7--7--7--7--7-7\5-7-5-3--3-6-6-|

The first solo is played over the chorus riff.It may be a bit off due to effects and any
I made. Broken down into sections to make it easier to read.

Solo 1:
|----------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------|
|----------------5h7-9b^-9p7-------------|
|-5h7--5h7--5h7--------------9p7-9b*-7~--|
|----------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------|

|----------------6h8-8b^-8p6---10b^-10p8-10p8-10~~-|
|-----6h8-8~-6h8-------------8---------------------|
|-5h7----------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------|

|----------------------------------------------------20----20----|
|------17------17------17------17------17------17-20----20----20-|
|-19b^----19b^----19b^----19b^----19b^----19b^-------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|

|----------------------------------------------------------|
|-21~--21~21~--21~-21~--21~--21~--21-21p18-18h20-20b*--18--|
|----------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------|

That's as much of the solo as I could get, be sure to use a lot of vibrato in that last
bit.
I couldn't tab the second solo, there's too many effects + 2 guitars soloing over each
complicated it a bit further. From what I could hear, it seems that a lot of that solo is
around the same sort of licks as the opening melody and the first solo, with a few 
licks thrown in, such as:

|-----------------|
|-----------------|
|-----7-------7---|
|-5h7----5h7------|
|-----------------|
|-----------------|

Those sorts of fairly basic rock fills. The second solo is played over the verse riff.

And finally, a fact about the song: on the rise above records website, the biography of
Wizard includes a short paragraph stating that this song is the definate highlight from
album, and helps to show how great the album is.

This tab is really accurate and easy to follow so I don't see how it could have 3 stars, gave it 5 which pulled it up to 4 for ya ;)
