Mars Volta – Tetragrammaton tab

This is Tetragrammaton by The Mars Volta. 
I did not tab all of this myself,
my teacher figured out probably 75% of this.
kudos to him.

Enjoy

The next part is just a bunch of noise and samples from the song, and a guitar w/ delay continue playing the part before the breakdown(x4) play breakdown again and after that there is another section of noise and samples and then...
just speed pick this part /w dist and slight delaythe +'s just mean speed pick in this parte|-------------------------------------------14++15++17++14++17+18--------|b|-0+++++++++17++18++17++18++17++15-0++++++++-----------------------------|g|------------------------------------------------------------------------|d|------------------------------------------------------------------------|a|------------------------------------------------------------------------|E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
I will add on when i figure out more of the song.
