Song: Pushit (live)
Album: Salival
Band: Tool

Tired of half-way done tabs so going to make it as detailed and correct as
possible. I will try and point all when he adds delay, changes delay, uses wah,
and such. Some parts will be unexplainable, you will have to listen to the recording.

Tuning is drop D.

TO SET YOUR DELAY CORRECTLY FOR ANY TOOL SONG
(With a proper delay setting your song can sound many times better)

Play the song up to a point where you can hear the delay effect very well,
in "Pushit (live)'s" case a good point is 8:21, where the drums have finished and
it is playing clean. Adam tends to set the delay to the beats in the song, which
seems right anwyays. 

Also, many parts of this song can be played on several different areas of the guitar.
I only show you where I play them, if you find you like it played somewhere else on
the guitar, then use that.
(The timing may be off because I am using winamp)


0:28 repeating open D string comes in permanently (no echo delay) (no volume
adjustments)

Keep tones and distortion low for solo and verse

[Intro]

During the silence here, reach down and set your DD-5 (or other) delay pedal to
normal delay functions (with it matching adam's delay hopefully). Keep the pedal
off, there is no delay in the verse.

[Verse 1]
1:20 Keep volume and distortion low, there is no delay. HOLD OUT NOTES

Rest of song:

6:08: Turn up volume all the way. Theres no definite structure to the song, so
I'll just post times. By this time your either getting really into the song, or
your faded and getting really into the song :D.

                                              might not have heard or may be hard to
                                              hear. A very subtle note.
