Duration Legend
---------------
W - whole
H.- half + quarter
H - half
Q.- quarter + 8th
Q - quarter
E - 8th
S - 16th

4 quarter notes (or 8 8th notes) make up one bar in 4/4 time

3 quarter notes (or 6 8th notes) make up one bar in 6/8 time


Tablature Legend
----------------
x - dead note
+ - natural harmonic
h - hammer on
p - pull off
s - slide to
~ - vibrato
b - bend (using finger, not whammy bar)
\n/ - whammy bar dip (n = ½ [semi-tone], n = 1 [whole tone], etc.)
/n\ - whammy bar bend up


A semi-tone bend would be like bending from 4th fret to the pitch of
5th fret.

A whole-tone bend would be like bending from 4th fret to the pitch of
6th fret.

And so on.

Haven't played it yet, but the timing looks spot on. I have a good feeling about this one.
Absolutely amazing band, especially when you listen to and realize their actual talent. My favorite band, hands down.

Wait, shouldn't the last note of the very first riff be a G on the third fret, low E? I think so....
