Takayoshi Ohmura - The Cataclysm tab

Tuning is half step down from standard E. I used the video performance on
youtube to tab this, but the studio version is pretty much exactly the
same. I did use the video on youtube with the examples (in the video you
will see "Ex. 1" "Ex.2" etc.) so those parts I claim no credit for. This
song uses Hybrid Picking (chicken picking) on many of the string jumps. Be
prepared for a callus or a blister or two.

Performance I used to tab this song:
