Track 2: 1,000,000

Tabbed by: Peter Stevens (YoPete525 AT gmail DOT com)

Legend

/ - slide up

Measure lines are indicated, and the song is in 4/4.  Everything is played in 8th notes, and excess
empty space after chords means either rest or make noise until the end of the measure (this is
noted above where it is applied).

Guitar 1 is played live by Finck, super fuzzy and quite loud.  He uses upstrokes on the main
riff, and sometimes in other parts, although he occasionally used downstrokes or a combination
of the two in the rehearsal footage.

On the second time through at the last measure, start holding the last chord of
each measure, and keep making noise rather than resting.  You can try sliding around
and adding vibrato/harmonics to spice it up.

On the third time only, keep a stream of noise coming instead
of a rest during the third and fourth measures.

Alternate with ending this with a slide down from the 12th fret and extended noise.  On
the last cycle just cut it off at the end.

It's not - it's played in standard tuning in the 8th position with single notes. That's how Finck plays it live and when I have played along it sounds correct.

What does the 8th position mean?
