ARTIST: Chevelle
SONG: The Clincher
ALBUM: This Type of Thinking
TABBED BY: Doug Kemp

This song was recorded using a 5-string.  An Ernie Ball I do believe.
For those of us with no such luck here is a 4-string version.

Tuning:  Drop A# (A#, F, A#, D#)

To get a similar sound I would suggest setting your equalizer like this:

(Range of -10 to +10)

Bass:  +5
Mid:  -2
Treble:  +8

I would also suggest using a pick and medium distortion.
I think the SansAmp D1 emulator on my multi-effects pedal sounds great for this song.

Guitar plays intro riff 4 times then the bass joins in, a like so...

how do you get it tuned so low without the strings being really floppy?
