-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Alan Beaulieu
Email: ajb0429@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

This is a basic interpretation of the distorted rhythm guitar part of the song.

Key: D 

VERSE - Palm mute an open 'D' string, finish with various short fills ending in D.

Example:

  D5                                                          Short fill(*)

D|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
  
  pm ----------------------------------------------------------->let ring--->|

  "A gangster came to see my boy....to pay one more bill"


(*) Other fills: Various D minor Penatonic riffs, ending in D.  Go nuts.  Open postion (below)

Tab incomplete. The chords and key are insanely easy. If it were listed as "chords" it'd be fine, but it's listed as a tab so it's wildly incomplete
