Mastodon: "Black tounge" tab

Tuning: Standard D

The main riff bellow is actually played by both guitars in two different tones that 
overlaps each other. I made it possible for you ro play it with only one guitar.

Then after playing this riff, you go back to playing the same thing one more time. It`s 
basicaly the same structure once again untill you meet the pre-chorus or whatever you`ll 
call it.

"You can run to the sea..."

Then you`ll have to learn this awesome riff (At least i think so). I think it works like 
a bridge in the song, im not sure ;) But here it is.

Well, here you have the main base of the awesome song from mastodon! I promise to tab 
the solo and the ending in a tab later on. If you are new to Mastodon i recomend you to 
check out their previous works too!! By the way, this was my first tab. Hope i did okay.

Hey nice tab i had already figured out the intro, but the rest was really helpful. Also I was working on the awesome riff yesterday and i was a little confused, but i think its close. Work out the solo pleasssee, (because i'm not good enough to...)
