   / System of a Down  /  This song is interpretated in hundred different ways; this is my
  / Lonely Day Solo   /  suggestion. It's yet again about how we're riddled by the medias
 / Hypnotize         /  of notions about how we need happy friends around us all the time.
/___________________/  This is about such riddled boy experiencing an entire day alone.

Below this tab is a tab of the live version from the Live Souls Concert. It's only a single
guitar playing there, so it's deffinately worth to check out if you're only a single
guitarist and unable to create this immense sound, which these three solo guitars do. Note
that everything here is ear transcribed by myself, so I can't guarantee it's 100% right.

I was actually waiting for this one. On my first run through it sounded very good. Keep up the good work man.

I'm too cheap to buy pro...but have you seen the live version of this solo? Its a little different and I honestly think its a little better, but that doesn't mean this is any less good of a tab. Very good job, again.
