ARTIST: Macabre
SONG: What's that smell? (Jeffrey Dahmer)
TRANSCRIBED BY: Thomas Abraham

NOTE:THE GUITAR AND BASS PLAY TOGETHER THROUGH THE ENTIRE SONG.
I AM A BASSIST AND MY BASS TEACHER HELPED ME FIGURE THIS OUT,
SO IT IS COMPLETE AND FAIRLY ACCURATE. LISTEN TO THE SONG FOR
THE TIMING AND SPEEDS. ENJOY!

  Cut them up and eat certain pieces of the men.


NOW REPEAT 'RIFF B' AND 'RIFF C'. THE LYRICS ARE ALSO REPEATED.
THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THE VERY LAST NOTE:
