This is a pretty fast song, and being thrash metal, that means during certain riffs,
are a lot of notes played in a very short amount of time, making it difficult to hear how the notes
are grouped.  So to make it easier, I indicate the grouping I use during some of the more
confusing parts.  Hope it saves you some trouble learning this killer song!
