Good tab. Quite accurate. I see many people not knowing the higher harmonies on the intro. To be a total Nazi dick though, Brent hammers on from 17 to 19 on the A string (relative to the whole step down tuning) instead of 12 to 14 on the high D string. If you're one who has to copy exactly what the musician does even though if you can do another thing to the exact same effect, this is what they do. Who gives a flying though? Mastodon \m/
