THETAWAVES by SYSTEM OF A DOWN
Written by: Daron Malakian with Serj Tankian, Shave Odadjian and John Dolmayan
Tabbed by: Rico Fabello
Tuning: Dropped D, Whole Step Down (C G C F A D)



I am sure this tab is as close as 100% as any tab will be for this song.



Intro (Play this riff twice. Also, there might be some hammer-ons to 9 during the
first part of the riff)

it's unnacurate. it's a good tab; organized nicely, but it seems as though you heard the song a few times and tabbed by memory, or maybe your guitar is out of tune. other than accuracy issues, it's a good tab.

you sed its in drop c but u tabbed it in Drop D and tabbed half a step too high. If everything was in the right key, this would be pretty much spot on, and yes most of the song is palm muted. =]
