Big Ringing Intro Chords:

I wont tab the rythym here, just listen to the song. The trick here
is to listen how Starcrunch strikes a chord, pauses, strikes it again,
then immediately slides the whole chord upto (or down to) the next one.

A C A D--------------5----8----5---10------------------------------------|--------------5----8----5---10------------------------------------|--------------6----9----6---11------------------------------------|--------------7----10---7---12------------------------------------|--------------7----10---7---12------------------------------------|--------------5----9----5---10------------------------------------|
Power Chords: Again, no rythym notated here. Start with the A & C chords then switch to an octave aproach for the D & E...
A C--------------5----8----------------------------------------------|--------------5----8----------------------------------------------|--------------6----9----7---9-------------------------------------|--------------7----10---X---X-------------------------------------|--------------7----10---5---7-------------------------------------|--------------5----9----------------------------------------------|
Riff A: (No you are not seeing notes on the 32nd or 20th fret... The picking is very fast and subtle and I am sure I am not tabbing every exact note. I ran some of the notes together to try to indicate timing without wasting a lot of space.)--------------------------------------------------------------------|--------------------------------------------------------------------|--------------------------------------------------------------------|-------------------------------------------------2-0------*---------|---0-2-3--32-0-2--20---0---------------------0-2-----3-2-14>>>>>>---|-0-------------------4---0-0-001-1131310-0-0------------------0-0-0-|
* 14th fret ??? Repeat Riff A again and this time end with the Power Chords. Riff B: (Just Riff A up an octave - a surf idiom!)
------------------------------------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------????--------|---2-4-5--54-2-4--42-1-2--------------------2-4--/9-7-------19----------|>>>(2)----------------------2-2-223-335352-2-2-----------10-9--19>>>>-222--|-------------------------------------------------------------------222--|-------------------------------------------------------------------000--|

Part C: (Again the picking is fast and subtle; I am showing the notes put not every pick!)
---------------5-4-----------------------5-4----------------------|-7-757-7575757------5------7-757-7575757--------------------------|----------------------6-------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------------|

Next comes the Power chords again; Followed by the first part of Riff B which rips into a solo. (Anyone want to take a stab at the solo??) End with:
