                        TEN TON HAMMER - Machine Head
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Artist: Machine Head                       Tabbed By: Dissolution213
Album: The More Things Change...           Email: Dissolution213@gmail.com
Song: Ten Ton Hammer
Tuning: Drop B (B F# B F G# C#)

Note: Notice the 3rd string tuning, it is tuned from E to F. Don't ask me why,
it makes the harmonics sound better. Robb Flynn said it himself.

I think, instead of the pinch harmonic,for the verses are on the G# string.... and when you do the harmonic get you pick CLOSER to the neck, it works on mine but not all guitars are the same...

SORRY LET ME REWORD THE FIRST PART instead of the pinch harmonic on the F string, do it on the G# string.

i don't know what it is with the ''harmonic'' in the verses, because it doesn't sound right to me. i just play the 16th fret on the high C#, and that sounds good to me.

and in the intro i play :

C#|-------------------------------------------|
G#|--10---------10---------10-----------------|
F |--13---------13---------13-----------------|
B |-----0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0--3-6-5--|
F#|-----0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0--3-6-5--|
B |-----0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0--3-6-5--|
. . . . . . . . . . . .

and i don't play the transition ( as you call it) single noted, but in power chords with the 2nd string muted like

C#|-----------------------|
G#|-----------------------|
F |--8-10-8-10-8-10-8-10-8|
B |--x- x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-|
F#|--6/ 8\6-6/8\6/8\6/8\6-|
B |-----------------------|
