Song: They Only Come Out At Night
Band: Lordi
Tabbed by: unspeakable.elvis@gmail.com

Legend:
.       palm mute
h       hammer on
p       pull off
/       slide up to note
\       slide down from note
16\12   slide from 16th fret to 12th fret
7b9     bend 7th fret major second up
9r7     release previous bend
~       vibrato
[6]     artificial (pinch) harmonic at 6th fret


Lots of artificial harmonics in the song; I find them easier to
play on the bridge pickup with slightly thicker strings, but
then everyone probably has their own method. Good luck!

Back to Chorus, which is repeated with some random soloing 
in A minor that's too hard to make out, the whole thing fades 
out until...

End!
