  Riff D  These are 10's and 11's and not 0's and 1's but count each number 
  as a pickstroke.  Basically Dino plays it too fast to make room.

yeah, this tab isnt too good. ill give it 2 stars (for a half-decent effort). first off, in riff 1, its not 2 to 3, its 0 to 1 (b to c). theres a guitar pro tab i have (i didnt make it btw) thats pretty spot on, not sure if its up here though.
