Song:           TOXICITY
Artist:         SYSTEM OF A DOWN
Album:          Toxicity
Track No:       12
Label:          American
Submitted By: IcEmAn
Tabbed by:      Edd Dawson (All my own work).


This was such a cool song I had to tab it. It's all pretty simple
really, although it's a bit tricky sometimes to get those fast chord
changes in the chorus sounding distinct, especially with a guitar
tuned as low as you need for this song. Enjoy :)

Any comments/corrections to: ma0etd@bath.ac.uk

My notation:
 ^ means bend.
[PALM MUTED... ...] means palm-mute the notes.
[MUTED] also means palm-mute the notes.

Only reason I used two different symbols for muting is that it looks
neater in some places.


Ok here's the structure:
