Please send feedback. Should I ever tab again, should I die? Or did you
kindof like it?

Okay, well I'm not posting this in the false pretense that I have it a
100% correct or 100% complete, but I think I accurately transcribed a 
large amount of this song, definently enough to cover it. I hope you enjoy
it. This uses two guitars but you can figure out when to play the parts
just by listening.

Standard Tuning

Opening Riff:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
--------14--14--9--9--10--10--12--12--10--10--9--9--3--3---------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
12--12-----------------------------------------------------------------

Onto the heavy! *this can be played with double strokes or not*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
-2--14--9--10--12--10--9--5--------------------------------------------
-2--14--9--10--12--10--9--5--------------------------------------------
-0--12--7--8---10--8---7--3--------------------------------------------

Next Stanza: Some out of tune sounding chord that is cool but I'm not
sure if I figured it out right, this is how I play it.

----------------------------------------------------------{-------------
----------------------------------------------------------{-------------
--3--------------------3----------------------------------{-------------
--2-------X--X--X--X---2----------------------------------{-14----------
--2-------X--X--X--X---2----------------------------------{-14----------
--0-------X--X--X--X---0----------------------------------{-12----------
 [Repeat 4 times, on 4th time use only 3 string scratches]

Enter Lyrics: This part makes you sound really cool (even if you aren't) :P
Palm Mute is pretty heavy so that the bass really hums.

After a few stanzas the first solo joins in with the verse section. Then 
it moves back to the heavy part (wee!!) with a few extra string scratches in
there, I'm sure you can figure it out.

Okay this next part is the most iffy of my transcription, but I know the
notes I have are rights, it's all the damn mutes that make it a litte rough.
I think this sounds right though, you slide between these chords.
Starts with 8 string mutes and then
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
----9\\8--8\\7--7\\6---6\\5-----X--X--X--X--2----X--X--X--X--2---------------
----9\\8--8\\7--7\\6---6\\5-----X--X--X--X--2----X--X--X--X--2------------------
----7\\6--6\\5--5\\4---4\\3-----X--X--X--X--0----X--X--X--X--0---------------

Add some mutes in there, lol.

Now go back to that rather Odd chord I mentioned before, the 3rd section.


Last section
