Artist: Judas Priest
Song: "Hellrider" written by Glenn Tipton, Rob Halford and KK Downing
From the album "Angel Of Retribution" (2005)
Tabbed by Nailed Reaper (reap*front.ru)

It's just a masterpiece of Priest. Absolutely fantastic song, pure brilliant in Judas' treasury.

. - palm mute
b - bend down
~ - vibrato
\ - slide down
/ - slide up
h - hammer on
p - pull off
t - tapping; note before this symbol is played with middle finger of your right hand
= - tremolo (play the note before this sign as fast as you can)
* - some effect, maybe it's wah-wah. It makes note 1 ot 2 octave higher

Tuning: tuned down half step.

the effect that you have labeled * is a pitch harmonic

yeah...the * is an artificial/pinch harmonic

and the intro isnt a tapping guitar; its two keyboards (2nd one fades in)

But it can be played as a tapping intro
