Band:   Machine Head
Song:   Now We Die
Album:  Bloodstone & Diamonds (2014)
Tuning: Drop B (B, F#, B, E, G#, C#)

Machine Head don't play in Drop B precisely... They are tuned to
Drop B but then tuned up 40 cents sharper... So even though not possible
it's kind of like they're playing in Drop B# (Between Drop B and C)


On a Korg tuner it would look something like this

Tuner:
50                           x  50#
|--|--|--|--|-[-B-]-|--|--|--|--|

The 'x' indicates where your tuning should be

Also comment, correct, and please, please rate!!!

I have Bloodstone & Diamonds on Pre-order so expect another Machine Head
full album tab during the week of release!

I use Audipo for Android to slow down my tracks so I can hear the 
closely placed notes such as in the main riff and the solo. 
The quality diminishes if slowed down too much but the pitch stays 
the same. I would highly recommend it.

Update: 30/09/14

Changed the triples in the beginning, A became A#, C became C#
Also changed the tapping in the solo as it was iffy in places
