Band: System of a Down
Song: Roulette
Album: Steal this album
Tabbed by: TveronicaFusion

This was the first song that I ever learned on the guitar.  I always said that I was 
learn
how to play certain songs one day.  Then I heard Roulette.  It is one of the most 
and
meaningful System of a Down songs I've ever heard.  I had to learn how to play it.  This 
before
I knew that tabs existed online.  So I downloaded the song and listened to it for 2 
weeks
picking out the song by ear.  I got really good at playing it and since July 2003 have 
much
more on the guitar.  I've even tabbed several videogame themes out myself.  I never 
I would
need to tab Roulette because I figured it had already been done.  Then one night when I 
playing
it I got curious and decided to see if anyone else had found any strings that I'd 
 I was
shocked.  Every entry was made so hard to play and this song is really simple.  It's 
sliding up and
down 2 strings for the most part.  So here you go I've tabbed out the song in its 
including
the solo which in the song is 2 guitars and a violin. Mine is the easiest and most 
of all
the tabs I've seen.

   I have a problem that I cannot explain, I have no reason why it should have been so plain.
   I have no questions but I sure have excuse, I lack the reasons why I should be so confused.

There you have it Roulette, uncut and in its entirety.  I swear to god that this song isn't
hard to play. It exists solely on 2 strings for most of the song.  and there are only 2 patterns
to play besides the solo.  My email address is TveronicaFusion@yahoo.com  Don't anybody 
to email
me and tell me that this is wrong until you've actually played it with the song going in 
background.

This is a really good job on this, but some of it is wrong, most notably in the intro/verse. But nothing that can't be sounded out by yourself, so this is a great tab!

What the hell was that? ^^
I definately didn't say that. This is a wicked tab, man.
And I definately don't say 'notably', either. I really don't think it was me that said that.
