===========          ARTIST:		System of a Down
          SONG:		        The Metro
          ALBUM:		Dracula 2000 Soundtrack
          TABBED BY:     	John Keogh (johnk@ar2.com)
          TUNING:		Dropped-C (low to high: CGCFad)
          
          
          Notes:
          
          This is the first tab i've ever really formally submitted, 
          so grant me a bit of slack.. but on the whole, i think it 
          turned out relatively accurate. The only parts that i'm not 
          sure on are the verse and chorus... From the sound of the 
          song, it seems the guitar is just following the bass, so i 
          turned the bass notes into power chords. Daron Malakian does 
          a lot of little lead-ins, and fills, in this song, but most 
          of it is just palm muting and playing around with the given 
          notes.
          
          Another thing, tuning your guitar down to Dropped-C is a 
          pain if your not fast at tuning, and a general waste of 
          time. The way I've been playing it, is in normal Dropped-D. 
          Dropped-C is obviously just Dropped-D a step lower, so play 
          it that way if your lazy, like me. hm.. i just realized I 
          wrote this while in normal tuning... i'm not about to go 
          back and figure it out, so do it yourself, or play it the 
          lazy way.
