{INTRO}

Play [Riff 1] Palm muted for the 1st bar.
Then sweep pick [Riff 1] for the 2nd
and 3rd bar.

Also, on the 3rd bar, play [Octaves 1]

{VERSE}

Play 2 bars of [Riff 1]. Palm muted all
the way.

{CHORUS 1}

Play [Octaves 2] and continue with
[Fill 1].

Play [Fill 2]

{CHORUS 2}

Play [Octaves 2] and continue with
[Fill 1].

Play [Fill 3]

{SOLO}

I did not tab the solo. I might consider tabbing it
if this one is successful.

But if you're planning to play along to this song,
play the [Tremolo Picking Part] in between the fast
licks that Syn Gates plays.

{BRIDGE}

4 bars of the power chords [D5, A#5, F5, C5]

2 bars of the chords [A#maj, Fmaj]

Continue to play {CHORUS 2}
