this is continued from death letter live intro. Before i couldn't be bothered to do all of it.

after the intro its the riff:

|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------3-0-3-3-3-3-3-----------------------------|
|----------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-----------------------------|
|--0----0--------------------------------------------|
|----3b----------------------------------------------|
which is repeated 4 a long time until it comes to the chords

|-----------------------------------------5------------|
|-0-3/5-5-5-5-5----0-3/5-5-5-5-5\-0--------------------|
|-0-3/5-5-5-5-5----0-3/5-5-5-5-5\-0--------------------|
|-0-3/5-5-5-5-5----0-3/5-5-5-5-5\-0---3-0--------------|
|-0-3/5-5-5-5-5----0-3/5-5-5-5-5\-0--------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------|

|------------------5-----------------------------------|
|------------------------/7-7-7-7-7---0--/5-5-5-5------|
|------------------------/7-7-7-7-7---0--/5-5-5-5------|
|--0-0------0--3-0-------/7-7-7-7-7---0--/5-5-5-5------|
|--0-0------0------------/7-7-7-7-7---0--/5-5-5-5------|
|--0-0---3b-0------------------------------------------|

|------------5----------------5----------------------|
|-5\-0-----------------------------------------------|
|-5\-0-----------------------------------------------|
|-5\-0---3-0----0-0----0--3-0---0-0----0-------------|
|-5\-0----------0-0----0--------0-0----0-------------|
|---------------0-0-3b-0--------0-0-3b-0-------------|
then its back to the riff which is played several times

|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------3-0-3-3-3-3-3-----------------------------|
|----------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-----------------------------|
|--0----0--------------------------------------------|
|----3b----------------------------------------------|

then back to the chords again

|-----------------------------------------5------------|
|-0-3/5-5-5-5-5----0-3/5-5-5-5-5\-0--------------------|
|-0-3/5-5-5-5-5----0-3/5-5-5-5-5\-0--------------------|
|-0-3/5-5-5-5-5----0-3/5-5-5-5-5\-0---3-0--------------|
|-0-3/5-5-5-5-5----0-3/5-5-5-5-5\-0--------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------|

|------------------5-----------------------------------|
|------------------------/7-7-7-7-7---0--/5-5-5-5------|
|------------------------/7-7-7-7-7---0--/5-5-5-5------|
|--0-0------0--3-0-------/7-7-7-7-7---0--/5-5-5-5------|
|--0-0------0------------/7-7-7-7-7---0--/5-5-5-5------|
|--0-0---3b-0------------------------------------------|

then its the decending part leading to the solo

|-------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------0---/5-5-5-5-5/7\---------|
|-----------------------------0---/5-5-5-5-5/7\---------|
|-----------------------------0---/5-5-5-5-5/7\---------|
|-----5-5---3-3---2-2---1-1---0---/5-5-5-5-5/7\---------|
|---5-----3-----2-----1-----0---------------------------|

then he slams on his distortion pedal

|------------------------------------------------------|
|--0--3-3-3-0-0-0-0--/12--0-3-3-3-0-0-0-0-/12----------|
|--0--3-3-3-0-0-0-0--/12--0-3-3-3-0-0-0-0-/12----------|
|--0--3-3-3-0-0-0-0--/12--0-3-3-3-0-0-0-0-/12----------|
|--0--3-3-3-0-0-0-0--/12--0-3-3-3-0-0-0-0-/12----------|
|------------------------------------------------------|

|-----------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------|
|-0-3-0-5-0-3-0-3-0-8\3-0-3-0-3-0-3-0-3/5-0-----------|
|-----------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------|

then he puts his whammy up an octave

|---------5-5----------------------------------------------|
|-------------5--------------------------------------------|
|-----3/5-------5-3/12-----12\0--3-0-3-0-3-5-0-3\2-0-------|
|----------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------|

shake your slide quickly on the 12's, and let ring..
|-----------12-----12----12\--15--15--15--15--15------------|
|-----------------------------15--15--15--15--15------------|
|-----10/12-----12---12----\--15--15--15--15--15------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|

|--------------------------------------------------------------|

|------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------|
|--10-10\----------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------|

then the whammy is stepped on and put back to normal with the decending bit leading back 
the second verse, also the distortion is turned off as well


|------------------------------------------------------|
