SONG: Ball Tongue
BAND: KoRn
ALBUM: self titled(1994)
TRANSCRIBER: Ashley MacDonald

Well here we are again. I just couldnt find a good, accurate tab for this song, this 
FRIGGIN AWESOME SONG. Some of the following riffs have pretty fast chord changes, a 
resonable guitarist can pull it off by themselves. Some parts require 2 guitars anyway. 
So... here we go...
   again....

Played on 7-string, tuned down one whole step.

KEY
 /   slide
 *   palm damp
 b   bend
 r   release

    FINISHED.... well it turned out pretty good.
                 it took me a while and i think 
                 this tab is pretty accurate.
                 damn better those other ones out there!
                    CYA ON MY NEXT TAB.
