Serj Tankian - Beethovens Cunt tab

                      Beethoven's  Cunt
                       by Serj Tankian

                           Tab by
                       Thegargoylevine

                     (The-gargoyle-vine)

This song is from Serj Tankian's solo album, Elect the Dead.
It is easily his heaviest song in the album, and is one of
the fastest.

This is my first tab, but that does not mean I'm new to UG
at all.  I've been using the site for years, so I have a
good idea what tabs look like.

And, as a side note, I never played Rock Band before, and I
bought Elect the Dead during fall of 2007, long before it
became a downloadable song in the game.

                       Tab information
------------------------------------------------------------

I suppose most people reading this know how to read tabs, so
I'll just include some stuff some people might not know:

- Serj uses a special effect in the song when '?' appears.
To be honest, I don't know what he does, but I think it's a
wah-wah pedal.  If I'm wrong please post a comment and tell
me what he uses.

- Notes in '()' are held from the last note.  The duration
letter above it will have a '+' before it

- Double bars on the sides of a given area with two 'o's are
repeat bars; play the material inside their boundaries twice

- When there are '[1.]' and '[2.]' above a repeated section,
play the one under the '[1.]' the first time through, repeat
it, and play the part under the '[2.]' the second time
instead

- 'PM' means palm mute; PM all the notes covered by it, but
only on the guitar it is above.  In this case, it means that
you only PM Gtr I, and not Gtr II when it appears

- Numbers like 4/4 or 3/4 that appear above the duration
notes are tempo markings; play in the given tempo until
another tempo marking appears
