Song: My Plague
Band: Slipknot
Guitarists: Mick Thomson and James Root
Album:Iowa
Tabbed by:Gary666

This is a really heavy song, and it is difficult to play.  So I recommend playin' it 
and then working,
your way up to the slipknot speed.  So practice makes perfect.  The tuning for this song 
A E A D F# B.


Intro: This part is pretty simple but the open power chords have to be played really really fast.  This
      is a good excercise for your alternate picking.

Guitar 1- Good ol' Jimmy
B |----------------------|
F#|----------------------|
D |----------------------|
A |----------------------|
E |-0-0-0-0-0------------|

Guitar 2- Mr Micky

E |-0-0-0-0-0------------------|
A |-0-0-0-0-0--1h2-2p1---------|

[Verse:] Pretty much the same as the intro, but the open power chords are played a little slower.

[Chorus:] This is quite easy if you can change chords and you fast going up and down the fret board.

Micky's part.

B |-------------------------------------|

[Interlude:] This part is extremely fast and I recommend learning it slowly and then pick up the speed.

B |--------------------------|
F#|--------------------------|

Then there is a different chorus riff:

D |--------14----10---------------------|
A |-------------------------------------|
E |-0-0-0--12----8-----22222/666666-----|
A |-0-0-0-----00-------22222/666666-----|

Then the verse is played again

D |--------------------------|
A |--------------------------|
E |-0-0-0--1h2-2p1-----------|
A |-0-0-0--1h2-2p1-----------|
p.m|-----|

The verse is then played again with a flanger and a break in  between the open chords 
the hammer ons.

Then the intro is played with a flanger:

The F# is a G, its the same tuning as a 7 string dropped to A, just without the high E
