This is just my interpretation. Ive tried, in places, to show
picking patterns which I found to be essential in getting the
sound. Of course, as this is Gorguts (Obscura) dont expect it
to be precise. Just use it as a tool.
You will need to listen to the CD for timing, accentuation, and
harmonics.

I have left all playing explanations at the end of the tab for
easier reading.

Performance Notes:
For the 8p2 parts you dont need a large reach, just move to the 2nd
fret with index finger as soon as youve hit 8th fret. Hard to explain,
just move your hand.

For the Demo Anthology version, there are a few differences.
In Riff A, with the F# chord, dont leave it ringing, but bend it
upwards slightly.
In Riff F, the First endings harmonic is played as same chord at the
start of the riff, and omit that chord. The harmonic is much more
pronounced in the final version.
