This is such a great instrumental, rather out of character for Cannibal
Corpse (tempo, tuning) but so effective.

Comments:

This song is played on seven-string guitars, I assume, at least Owen was
playing one when I saw them in September '98.  The tuning is Bb, which
is down 3 whole steps from the usual (Meshuggah tuning!).  I tune my six
string to the lowest six, so Bb Eb Ab Db Gb Bb.  Note the fourth interval
is between the 1st and 2nd strings rather than the 2nd and 3rd.

Generally one dash is a 16th note or a 32nd note in length, so either ---- 
or -------- is one beat.

Notation explanation:----------9:--4:-- Time Signature changes. If you don't understand, listen-8:--4:-- to the song.---------
-/= 3 =\-- Triplets. Play three notes in the space of two. ---------- -/= 6 =\-- Sextuplets. Play six notes in the space of four. --4"----- Tremolo pick. Pick the note evenly and very quickly. --------- --3/5---- These are both slides to the 5th fret, picking only --3//5--- the first note. --<2b>--- Artificial harmonic, bending the string up slightly. --------- --<3~>--- Artificial harmonic, with vibrato. ---p1r--- prebend slightly, pick the note and then release. --------- -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Tempo: slow
