he does a lot of hammer ons and pull offs so just listen for the correct amount.

oh and for riff 6 and 7 im not completely sure but it may go like this also (im only 
it for one string but use all 3 and you no where the PM's go)

I've been tabbing the Mastodon cover of this and I watched a video of the Melvins version live. I saw King Buzzo playing the main riff the way I play it, like this:

----------------------------------
----------------------------------
----------------------------------
-7--7-------5-7-5-8--8------5-8-10
-5--5-------3-5-3-6--6------3-6-8-
------0-0-0--0-0-0-----0-0-0-0-0-0
______*_*_*__*_*_*_____*_*_*_*_*_*

* = Palm Mute

Still a decent tab, but I can't correct the solo or some of the other stuff cuz I've been tabbing the Mastodon version.
