                       The Art Of Shredding

INTRO -- Bass and Drums       (bass is just low E chuggin')
           P.M.                 P.M.                REPEAT both bars once

                                           I don't have a trem, but I
                                           know the second time the 
  |P.M.|                                    note is a 2-octave A  
e|---------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------|       Darrell plays with artificial 
D|---------4-2---------------------|         harmonics on a few notes,
A|-------------5--4--2---2--4------|         listen up and you can 
E|-0--2----------------5------5----|         figure it out.

D|--4-----4-----5-----5-----4-----4--5-----5----5--4---|      about this
A|-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2--------2-----2--------|      part)             
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

right after that riff hit a bunch of C#'s then a huge D -- 
            here we go! !    

      This is the MASSIVE RIFF for the chorus            (right before
   P.M.                                                   the verse starts)
e|---------------------------------------|            --------------|
B|---------------------------------------|            --------------|
G|---------------------------------------|            --------------|
D|-----------6----------5----------8-7---|            --------------|
A|-------8---4------7---3------6-7/6-5---|            --8-9-9---98--|
E|--0-0--6-------0--5-------0--4-5-------|            --6-7-7---76--|

that chord in between the end of the chorus riff and the verse is a hard F#

  the verse riff is just a palm muted progression of notes-
               it goes from E to G# to E to A#
           
     P.M.----------           1st time only
e|---------------------------|-------|
B|---------------------------|-------|
G|---------------------------|--8-\--|
D|---------------------------|--8-\--|     
A|--6---6---6---6------------|--6-\--|
E|----7---6---5---4---4-5-6--|-------|

     this riff's kinda tricky -- it's hard to keep the D# staccato

 SHHHHRRRRREEEEDDDD!!!     
     P.m.-       P.M.      -  -
e|------------------------------|
B|------------------------------|
G|------------------------------| this part's very strange
D|------------------------------| to look at, just listen 
A|-6-6-----6/7\6--66-----4------| to get the feel right
E|-4-4--0--4/5\4--44--0--2-0--0-| (also, I think that slide
                                   from G# to A may
                                    actually be a bend)

then do a chromatic descent from A# into the blitzkrieg!

ok, solo's next-- you guys are on your own for that baby!!
           There's a lot of cool bends and a TON of stretching involved

I suppose the last thing is the chorus and that descending Eb thing--
there's a harmony that's something like this on the last time--
                                
                                         RIGHT!
