Band: Megadeth
Song: Tornado of Souls
Album: Rust in Peace
Bassist: David Ellefson
Tuning: Standard (E A D G)
Tabbed by: JJJ

I noticed the other tabs were incomplete and partly incorrect so I made one
based on the original bass track which can be heard here:
  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4lqNjX0AAw

I tried to include all the little slides, rests and mute notes as well as
convey the timing when possible. For some of the trickier parts I used an
audio editor to loop the notes one by one in order to figure them out. It
should all be pretty much correct but let me know if you find a mistake.
