 THIS SONG IS  HARD.
=====================================
This song is  hard to play at full speed but i learnt to do it 
so there is nothing stopping you, unless you are a complete novice. The main 
riff is pretty simple technique wise but you really need to own a 
copy of the song to nail the phrasing and get it all under your fingers
   It is very important to warm up before going full pace on a piece
like this other wise you damage a muscle or something then try and sue
me. I find that about half an hour of constant widdiling and hard 
excercises is enough to get those tendons up to full speed. Heres a 
handy tip, cold hands are slow hands, so warm them up by the fire or 
even sit on them for a while before doing your warm up excercises.

SO HOW DO I PLAY THIS?
===============================
  To get the right sound on the riff paly it with down strokes and
give it some palm mutes on the bottom E string. The solo contains
some fast alternate picking interlaced with some hammer on
and pull off ideas, practice is the only way to get that fast im
afraid. 

AND WHAT ABOUT THE DRILL?
=========================
   If you do anything pay attention to this, use a cordless hand held drill and 
NEVER EVER USE MAINS CONNECTED DRILL.....EVER. If you do it will result
in a warm tingly sensation as you become at one with the national grid.
To play the drill part i had to make a special drill bit to fit on the 
drill, it was made out of a massive gibson triangular bass pick, a 2 
inch bolt shaft with the head cut off and 2 regular nuts.

                                       Step 1 is to glue some thick picks together.
   Nut,glued Picks,Nut   boltshaft      Drill a hole in the center of the picks
                                      Sandwich the picks at the end
            |||                        of the bolt shaft between the
         :[]|||[]::::::::::            2 nuts, just behind the 2nd        
            |||                        nut hit the shaft hard with 
                                      a chisel, this will thread the
         (side view)         bolt and stop the nuts moviung further.   
                             Screw the long bit into the end of your
                             hand held CORDLESS drill and away you go.

Try and find a comfortable position when holding the drill, experiment
trying to find the best sound with out tearing up your guitar and 
snaping all your strings.

    Repeat part 6 twice. 

    Repeat part 7.  

    Repeat part 8 four times, but on the 2nd and 4th time
    stick in that fast desending tiplet as seen in part 9.

    The very last part of the song consists F5, G5, and a C5 chord     
    Its so simple so you can work it out for your selfs.




                                                         Have a go at it.
