=================================================================================================
Song: Last Rites
Artist: Mercyful Fate
Album: 9 (1999)

Tabbed by Chris Rezendes (dudemcrude@yahoo.com)

Tuning: Standard

Notation Key
v: vibrato
t: tremolo bar
^: bend
.: palm mute
~: trill
p: pull-off
h: hammer-on
x: ghost note
/: slide up
\: slide down

Comments:  Mercyful Fate rule.  Some people are annoyed by King Diamond's screeching, I find it quite beautiful, complimenting the brutal riffery in a splendid way.  Anyway, I think the tab came out pretty good, although some of the riffs I put in there might have been played on the keyboard and not actually one of the guitars.  Oh well.  Anyway, if you spot a mistake, feel free to point it out to me, or you can e-mail me the corrections.  Later.

where's the solo? this tab is pretty good except for the figures structure. I understand better with verses, chorus, solos and bridges.
