Pantera - Floods
From the album - Great Southern Trendkill
Tabbed by - mainly me - shalloys, but the solo isn't my work.I've been looking around 
for a good tab of this song. I haven't found an accurate one yet. I've gone ahead and 
done one, using bits from the tabs of it i've found. It's not perfect, most notes should
be correct although not necessarily played in the right position. Post your comments of 
which bits are wrong, but I cant be bothered listening to you bagging the shit out of me
so please dont. The solo is a bit screwed as theres is like 5 guitars in it so it will be
hard to understand, and probably the most inaccurate part of the song.

Apparently this uses a tremolo bar to get that sound, play it how you feel is right.

[Solo]
Ok, I did not tab this section so don't blame me for the extreme confusion and/or mistakes.

all down to C# but if one of them or more are not please correct me.

do it.
