This is a pretty simple song.
Each bar has a palm mute line above it, but you only palm mute the notes with ---| 
above them including the one under the |
I refer to specific bars by FIG.[NUMBER] and it continues from the F in FIG to the 
| in -------------------------| (and if there is no |, then it means the fig is a 
few more bars longer until there is a |)
Standard tuning all the way
Everything's w/ distortion unless told otherwise.


tempo = 140
