Iced Earth - My Own Savior tab

Band- Iced Earth
Song- My Own Savior
Album- Something Wicked This Way Comes

Tuning: Eb


NOTE: For this riff, the ending single notes are struck
like artificial harmonics, but so slight that I
didn't even mark them as such.  The G note at the
very end is normal however.
