Tunning - whole step (D etc.)

Note: This is my favourite song from the album (that and Cold Demons). It's 
not actually that hard to play (all riffs are played fairly fast) but there 
are loads of different fills and variations, which is quite common with 
Vader. All the fast picking parts are not accurate but listen to the song 
for lengths and timings. Feel free to Email me if you have any questions. 
Enjoy

That's it! As I say it's not that hard to play but there are lots of 
variations and fills to remember and it can get confusing. Send along any 
corrections you have as well.
