Pantera - Cemetary Gates tab

the ACTUAL tuning Pantera plays in is a quarter step down, yes, a quarter step. find 
that spot between half step down and standard and let that sucker sing baby!

what im going to do in this tab is show all the riffs, not how many times you play each, 
you should be able to realize when one ends and the other begins as long as you know 
the song. and they are also in order. if its confusing at all, message me for changes. enjoy.

key:
<>  artificial harmonic (pinch harmonics)
[]  natural harmonic
~   vibrato
h   hammer on
p   pull-off
/   slide
b   bend
r   release

use a tremelo bar to play this last part right {} symbolizes dives. you'll have to 
listen closely for timing.
