System Of A Down - Question tab

    ____________________
   / System of a Down  /  I think that this song is simply about existentialism.
  / Question!         /  The red berries refer to Adam and Eve and wether why that
 / Mezmerize         /  is not a way of seeing things. Maybe being dead is just as
/___________________/  good as being alive, maybe the ghosts are very alike us.

Gtr I (E A D G B E) - Steel Stringed Acoustic, Clean
Gtr II (C G C F A D) - Electric, Distorted
Gtr III (C G C F A D) - Electric, Distorted
Gtr IV (C G C F A D) - Electric, Clean

*Before even starting on the intro, you really need to catch the 9/16 feeling - and of
course build up your finger endurance, as it is an extremely challenging song to play.
Anyways, to get that feeling, imagine the 12/16 (6/8 or 3/4) feeling, and then forget
about the last three 16th parts. I think the 5/8 feeling is actually easier to catch!
After doing this tab, I've really realized that SOAD have really become clever musicians!

Rhy Fig 2 x2 + Rhy Fig 1 x2




  Sweet berries ready for two
  Ghosts are no different than you
  Ghosts are now waiting for you
  Are you dreaming?

  Dreaming the night
  Dreaming all right

  Do we, do we know when we fly?
  When we, when we go do we die?
