Band:  Suffocation
Album: Pierced from Within
Song:  Pierced from Within


.  - palm mute           /  - slide up to
\  - slide down to       ~  - vibrato
h  - hammer on           b  - Bend  e.g.: 10b(12) = bend 1 tone
p  - pull off            pb - pre-Bend
t  - tap                 dv - dive (tremolo bar)
p.h. pinched harmonic    
*  - commentary          r - release bend
x  - Stuccatto           ~  - vibrato bend
,  - slight palm mute    () - ghost note, sustained note
"  - tremolo note        tr - Trill

Most of the times, two (-) are equal to one 8th note (if else, i'll 
indicate it) to lighten the reading of the tabs.
The numbers above the measures are the time signatures.
I know there is already a tab for this song on the internet, but
in my opinion it is very wrong, so I thought I'd add my
version for people to choose which one they prefer.
By the way, guitar 1 = right channel and guitar 2 = left channel.
Those two are tuned differently, making it harder to transcribe the notes.
The solos are, of course, not written the way Cerrito and Hobbs play them 
but the way I like to play them. If you know better, please email me at:

Thanks to Michael King for the input concerning RIFF 2 ! 
Greatly appreciated !

For the solos, I tried to reproduced the rythm the best I could.
But Notepad being what it is, you'd better just download the GP4 
version or listen to the song for an approximative idea of what it is.
