This is the true Aerials Tab.  I have collected information, and i have seen
many live System of A Down concerts and I have studied what they play.  Along
with that, it sounds perfect.

This is another great song by System of A Down.  I hope you enjoy this, and this
is truly correct.  But a couple things.  The 8 strums in there chorus are there
just to provide guitar noise, so dont get worried if you dont strum as much as
that, it's just there to provide guitar sound.  Also, I didn't really know the
what it was called, but i called it Bending the string.  Its when you push down
on the frets (of couse) and move the strings up and down so they make that
distorted type sound.  Anyway, let me know if you liked this tab or have
questions, my email is  Starscreamer2014@yahoo.com

Crap, i just realized, you only bend the strings in the chorus type part if you dont have much distortion, but if you have lots of distortion, then let it play nice and cleanly!
