Artist: Tool
Song: Merkaba
Album: Salival

The only Merkaba tabs I could find on the net were so incorrect that I decided to submit 
own version which is, hopefully, more precise. I`m still working on it, so it`s not complete

(I really don`t think that I`ll ever be able to tab the solo parts, the sounds are too 
up for my ears to understand them:)

Enjoy!


Drop-d tuning: DADGBE


The guitar starts at 01:04

------------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------|
------11---------9-------------11----------12---------------------------|
---12---------11---11-------12----------14----14------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------|

During the song the other guitar is playing similar stuff only an octave higher.


-------------------------------------------------|----------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------|----------------------------|
------11---------9-------------11---------9------|----------------------------|
---12---------11---11-------12---------11---11---|--7/9---9---9---10-10-10----|
-------------------------------------------------|----------------------------|

                                                Repeat the last part `till the heavy part


Heavy part 01:39

-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
--9----9----7/9-x-x-9----7/9-x-x-9----7/9-x-x-10-9-7-------------------|
--9----9----7/9-x-x-9----7/9-x-x-9----7/9-x-x-10-9-7-------------------|
--9----9----7/9-x-x-9----7/9-x-x-9----7/9-x-x-10-9-7-------------------|

Note: Muted chords are B (9th fret)

One guitar plays this `till 02:29.


The other guitar starts playing at 02:13

It seems to me that the guitar is just being strummed on these notes

-------14----------------12----------------14---------------15----|
--15----------------14----------------15---------------17---------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|

-------14----------------12----------------14---------------12----|
--15----------------14----------------15---------------14---------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|


Then, for a few seconds Adam plays the B chord, slightly bending it from time to time.


Bridge to verse 02:46

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14--|

Not all of these notes are played, I just tabbed it like this, so it would be easier to

follow the rhythm.

During verse there is only one note:

-------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------|
--9--(plam muted)--------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------|

Then it`s the heavy part again.


The rest of the song is played using these riffs.
In some places they`re altered a bit, but by playing around these riffs it is easy to

understand what he`s playing.

Well, that`s it!
