	                From their amazing '94 EP "None"

Yep... This will be the first Meshuggah tab ever on Ultimate-guitar.
Meshuggah is a great band that people should really start listening to..
Comments:

Meshuggah play seven-string guitars tuned down a semitone to Bb.  This
is transcribed for a six-string, so tune to Bb Eb Ab Db Gb Bb, and
you'll never miss that last string, cause you can't play those solos
anyway can you ;) Definitely use fat strings if you want a good sound,
at least 12's.
Generally one dash is a 16th note or a 32nd note in length, so either
---- or -------- is one beat.  Be very careful with the rhythms in
Meshuggah songs, they are not instinctive until you really know the
song.  The rhythms are transcribed very accurately in this document.

Notation explanation:
---------
-5:--4:--  Time Signature changes.  If you don't understand, listen
-4:--4:--        to the song.
---------

The most important things needed to sound like Meshuggah is to nail
the rhythms accurately, and to palm mute the right notes.  Pay
attention to those P.Ms.
