Kings X - Higher Than God tab version 1

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     HIGHER THAN GOD - King's X
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Isaias Garcia (TexasFury)

Tuning: Drop C#


=================================================================================

This radio single from "Tape Head" (1998) has a very simple rhythm guitar part, although
the syncopated changes might trip up beginners. Ty (Tabor) practically plays the riffs
exactly the same throughout, his only variation is omitting a natural harmonic during 
the guitar solo. Because of that, I'll simply notate the riffs and identify them.

The chorus riffs consists of two measures: the first in 4/4 time, and the second in 2/4
time (4/4 + 2/4). They could also be thought of as 6/4, but it starts to get cluttered
at that length.

Riff #3 get played right before the solo, and is played once more to end the song.
