"Martyr" is the hard-hitting opening song on Soul of A New Machine and 
it (for me) sets the tone of the rest of the album.  It is my favorite 
song on this album.

For the most part, the song is not extremely difficult.  It has it's 
tricky parts but for the most part, a decent sense of rhythm should 
navigate you through the song.  Enjoy!

Tune all strings down a perfect fourth (B, E, A, D)

LEGEND:
 
        H    -- hit-on
        P    -- pull-off

        A.H. -- Artificial Harmonic
        N.H. -- Natural Harmonic
	  /    -- slide up
	  \	 -- slide down

Riff D

Note: the number of pick strokes here is sort of 
arbitrary, but I made my best guess as to how 
many there are actually there; just pick each 
note for an appropriate length of time.
