                         PRAISE THE WAR MACHINE - Zao
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Robert Cole Jensen

Tuning: Drop C

This is a tab for the lead guitar, or a version you can play with one guitar for a live situation.

Intro Riff 1

e|10--------13----------|
B|--11-10-11---11-10-11-|x4
G|----------------------|
D|----------------------|
A|----------------------|
E|----------------------|

Intro Riff 2

e|9--------12------------9-9-7-9-10-9h10p9-10-12-|
B|-11-10-11--11-10-11-x3-------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

Chorus

e|------------------------------|
B|------------------------------|
G|------------------------------|
D|-5h6--0-x-5h6--0-x-5h6-00 x10-| (including two variations)
A|-5h6--0-x-5h6--0-x-5h6-00-----|
E|-5h6--0-x-5h6--0-x-5h6-00-----|
                         ..
Chorus Variation 1

Right after vocalist screams "To set us free!" play triplets on the bottom three strings
holding your fingers just barely touching them, moving down the neck. You should get
sound of natural harmonics running down the neck.

Chorus Variation 2

At same location as the first variation, just on the last time:

e|----------------|
B|----------------|
G|----------------|
D|-0000-0--0000-0-|
A|-0000-0--0000-0-|
E|-0000-0--0000-0-|
   .... .  .... .

Things are going to seem disjointed for the Bridge/Breakdown, read the order at the
and it will make sense. Also, each time the main riff is played through four times, the
will variate. I'm trusting you to be able to figure out the simple rythmn switches, 
to the song, it will help.

Bridge/Breakdown Main Riff

e|---------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------| x4 (On last time, add pinch harmonic)
D|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|
E|0000000000000000-0140140140140141
  ................

Bridge/Breakdown Riff 2

e|------------|
B|------------|
G|------------|
D|-6-8-5------|
A|-6-8-5-ph5~-|
E|-6-8-5------|

Bridge/Breakdown Riff 3

e|----------------|
B|----------------|
G|----------------|
D|-6-8-5-6-5-ph5~-|
A|-6-8-5-6-5------|
E|-6-8-5-6-5------|
   . . . . .

Outro Riff

e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------|
D|-000000000000-1/4-000000000000-8h10-7~-|
A|-000000000000-1/4-000000000000-8h10-7~-|
E|-000000000000-1/4-000000000000-8h10-7~-|
   ............     ............

It's also fun, after the outro riff has been played through four times, to pick two
chords to play back and forth until your group fades/ends.

Song Order:
Intro Riff 1
Intro Riff 2

Intro Riff 2
Chorus x4
