I do not guarantee that this tab is correct.  It is merely an attempt
to show how I play the song.  If you have any corrections, especially
for the bridge (because I think it is wrong), please post them.



This song is played with both guitars tuned to drop d 
and then all strings tuned down a half step.


Legend:

<> denotes natural harmonics
/  denotes slide up
h  denotes hammer on
p  denotes pull off
.  denotes palm mute

Play Verse Riff 4 times

Play Chorus Riff 2 times



Okay, here's where I got kind of stuck.  I think most of the song is
pretty accurate up until guitar one's part during the bridge.  A lot
of the notes are right, I believe, but i think the technique is wrong.
You might try pulling off and hammering on to and from the open Ab 
string to the sixth and seventh frets.
