HELP ME I AM IN HELL
   (transcribed out by Elissa Feit)

    1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and    1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and
E---------------------------|--------------------------|
B---------------------------|-----------9--------------|
G---------------------------|--7-----7-----------------|
D---9--9--9--10-10-10-10-10-|--X--10-X--X--X--X--X--X--|
A---7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|
E---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|

The "X" signifies the muting/dampening of the string.

Suggestions: play the 7 on A with your index finger. Play the 9 on D with 
your 4th (out of 5) finger. Play the 10 on D with your pinky. Play the 7 
on  with your 3rd finger and leave it there - don't lift it for the 
remainder of the measure. Play the 10 on A with the 4th, play the 9 on B 
also with the 4th and hold it there to ring out for the rest of the 
measure. Keep the E and A string as a steady drone.

    1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and    1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and
E---------------------------|--------------------------|
B---------------------------|--------------------------|
G---------------------------|-----------------7--------|
D---9--9--9--10-10-10-10-10-|--7--7--7--6-----6--------|
A---7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|
E---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|

Play all 4 measures over and over, etc...

Suggestions: same fingering for the third measure as the first.  I find 
it easiest to play the 7-7 in the fourth measure with my 3rd and 4th 
fingers. Then when I hit the 6 on D, I can use my index finger without 
lifting my third finger up.  Let the first 6 on D ring for that extra 
eighth note.  Let the 7 on G ring for the remainder of the measure.

Just fix the formatting on Last and this would be great!
