played along with the bass.

And that, as they say, is all, folks! Enjoy and stay metal! \m/

[*] - The chord progression is D, C, Eb, F then back to D.
Play the C chord either by playing the power chord on the 5th fret
(x577xx), or the fifth and octaves (as shown in the tabs).
After the break, the same progression is used, but it sounds higher in the song.
Play either higher down the fret-board (as shown in the tabs), or on the 5th string.
(D - 0799xx, C - x577xx, Eb - x81010xx, F - x101212xx) for best sound.
Play it slower the second time around.

/ - slide up
\ - slide down
~ - hold note
. - palm mute
' - tremolo pick```
