	                From their amazing '94 EP "None"

Version 2 - Some changes..

Tabbed by:  Jason Mathie
	    Mathie@unixg.ubc.ca

Most of this tab is derived directly from other people's work, with lots
of corrections and additions from me.  Some of this was adapted from a
graphical transcription done by Pablo Alvarez Danker, and a tab written
by Erik Heino was also used.

Comments:

Meshuggah play seven-string guitars tuned down a semitone to Bb.  This is
transcribed for a six-string, so tune to Bb Eb Ab Db Gb Bb, and you'll
never
miss that last string, cause you can't play those solos anyway can you ;)

Generally one dash is a 16th note or a 32nd note in length, so either ----
or -------- is one beat.  To help with complex rhythms I've included
markers (|) to show the quarter note beats.

Notation explanation:
---------
-5:--4:--  Time Signature changes.  If you don't understand, listen
-4:--4:--        to the song.
---------

The important things needed to sound like Meshuggah is to nail the rhythms
accurately, and to palm mute the right notes.  Pay attention to those
P.Ms.
