"  - tremolo note                * - read comment
.  - palm mute                   \ - slide down
r  - natural harmonics           / - slide up

Tuning: C(everystring 2 steps down)

Note: I wasn't anal with this song, so I didn't include some detail such as
      a riff ending with a slight slide(such as in Riff B).  But all the notes
      are right.

*Riff H.2|---------------------------||---------------------------||---------------------------| GTR I|----------------4----------||-2----3-2-------2-3\-------||-0----1-0---------1\-------|

* Again, I didn't pay attention to see if the F# was in one of the guitars. Also, when I transcribed this song my guitar was in B which makes it tonally impossible to get the correct harmonics, but my guess is that it was F#'s. Anyways, if those harmonics are wrong it should be pretty easy to figure out yourself what they are if your guitar is in C. Personally I don't have the patience to put my guitar in C, so I always leave it as B :) Play Riff H.1 twice with solo Then Play the following Riff D 4x Riff A 4x Riff B 4x Riff A 4x Riff F 2x Riff B 2x Riff F 2x Riff B 2x Riff G Riff C 4x Riff G For questions, comments, corrections, or newest version, email
