This has got to be one of Pantera's heaviest songs ever. Here's how I 
figured it out. Most of the verse and intro parts are just muted strings
or palm-muted 022xxx chords and this really weird chord that Darrell
demonstrated in his Guitar World column, so I know it's right. They call
it an Eb/Bbadd2 in the mag, it's shaped like 1113xx. Some of the other 
parts are not exactly right but close. Enjoy.

After chorus, mute 6th string with one finger and pick while sliding up,
to get natural harmonics to sound.

The weird scrape noise is hard to describe, but think of it like barring the natural harmonics on the 5th fret, then raking up while kinda palm muting.
