                         FOREST - System Of A Down
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Donald Morrison
Email: atwa@hotmail.com

Tuning: Drop D and one step down (C-G-C-F-A-D)

KEY:

-Below tab:
*   - palm-mute note

-Above tab:
N/4  - timing, where N is the number of beats per measure
xN   - repeat N times (repeated parts are marked by a double vertical line 
      at start and finish)
x    - duration of note where x equals: w (whole note), h (half note), q
       (quarter note), e (eighth note), or s (sixteenth note); note that x. 
       represents 1.5 times x
X    - indicates a rest of specified duration (see above)
  - used for anomalies in timing, especially triplets, where x is the 
       equivalent total duration of the notes within the brackets
-    - allow note to ring out for an unspecified amount of time
