Children Of Bodom – Hellhounds On My Trail tab ver. 2

This is my interpretation of Alexi's guitar part
I would say this is 95% correct what I would say is incorrect is the number of chords
strummed in the Chorus and the Breakdown section but the notes are correct.
Make sure you read the text in throughout this tab for a better explanation for playing 
this song.
Note there is no Palm Muting marks because I don't think you need them (just listen to
the song and you should be able to figure it out).

Or...You can do it this way from either 15 or 17 on the G,B (F,A) string and doing the sametechnique with the whammy bar as above.||-Depress whammy bar before picking-N.H -----------|||-15*N.H------17*N.H-------------------------------|||-15*N.H--OR--17*N.H-------------------------------|||--------------------------------------------------|||--------------------------------------------------|||--------------------------------------------------|
Ok here are the chromatic scale notes or whatever he uses to play this part(Not the solo, it's only the notes!)||--13-12-11-10----------------------------------------------|||-------------14-13-12-11-----------------------------------|||------------------------14-13-12-11------------------------|||------------------------------------15-14-13-12------------|||-----------------------------------------------16-15-14-13-|||-----------------------------------------------------------|
And here is how he plays it with tapping, note that it is all tapping, hammer on's, andpull off's(no picking in this part).||-T13p10h11h12T13p12p11p10--------------------------------------------|||--------------------------T14p13p12p11h12h13T14p13T14p13p12p11-------|||---------------------------------------------------------------------|||---------------------------------------------------------------------|||---------------------------------------------------------------------|||---------------------------------------------------------------------|

Alexi even says that everytime he plays it, it's going to be different; like he will play it like it is above butwhen he gets to the G/F string he will go back to the B/A string and then go all the way to the end. Just muck around with the notes in the scale but make sure you only Tap, hammeron, and pull off.
