Note: I am NOT the transcriber of these songs, I am just reposting it as
someone else had requested it. The name of those who figued out these
songs appear somewhere in this file I think.
Also in the next little while I hope to figure out a few other songs,
like Intolerance and 4 Degrees.

TOOL / Undertow

SONG 2 Prison Sex

open with echo effect ( Q = Q Q Q Q )

Depress tremolo all the way and hit the low B string twice.
Release tremolo while scraping low B string with edge of pick.
Depress tremolo all the way and hit the low B string once.
Let the low B ring and release tremolo slowly.
As soon as the tremolo returns to normal position, turn off echo and start
 the intro.

Subject: TAB: Prison Sex (Tool)

I believe I remember someone requesting whatever Tool songs anyone might
have. I looked around Nevada, and they don't even have a Tool directory.
So I took it upon myself to whip this up. I didn't have the tape with me,
so if there are any mistakes, they're probably my on errors in playing
the song, and there are lots of different fingerings you can use with
this song. Oh well, at least it sounds right to *me*... I can guarantee
the timing isn't accurate.

I also know just about everything on Undertow. I might get around to
posting them, but I'm not to good at transcription, and Tool songs aren't
too easy to transcribe...

This song is in standard tuneing on a baritone guitar. A baritone guitar is made for very heavy gauged strings so you can have a low B would be after low E there wouldnt be a high e bGDAEB. Its like a 7 string w/o string 1.
You could get heavy string and tune your guitar the way its said here but it might buzz due to the dramatic tension diffrence on the neck, ect. Especially if its a strat or something like that lol.

nah, dude, it's just tuned down a fifth. your way would work too, but i'm fairly sure that Adam Jones drops his low string. and a baritone is tuned in BEADF#B.

also the intro is the bass, which is also tuned to low B.
