                     ^if you can do this note as a hammer on on the 
                      sixth string, do so, because it sounds better.
                      It's kinda hard for me to stretch that far, so 
                      I do it like this.
(Note: this synth line appears in the left channel near the end of the song,
 when Trent is screaming "slavery." It's kinda hard to hear unless you're 
 paying attention. It's more obvious in the version that appears on "Fixed.")
