[ intro ]

Marcos uses some pretty freaky effects on this one.  I don't know anything about effects pedals 
and I have never used one, so I don't know what effect he is using. 
The parts with effects are really hard to tab because they are all overlapped, but here's what
I could make of them, I guess with the right effects pedal it will sound close. Get the timing 
right by hearing the song (if you can make out the notes!). If you can't, just leave the part out.

I:
(little distortion w/ effects)
e|------------------|---------------------------|-----------------|
B|-------------6----|-3-5b6rp3-5b6-r--3---3-----|--------------6--|
G|-5---3--2-3-------|-------------------5-------|-5---3--2-3------|
D|------------------|---------------------------|-----------------|
A|------------------|---------------------------|-----------------|
D|------------------|---------------------------|-----------------|

hey great tab, one thing, on the bend at teh end of the intro do u mean bend 14 and release to 11? it's kinda confusing the way you put it.

Thanks a lot man. About the bend: it's from 11 untill you reach the pitch of the 14th fret, then you release it to 11.
