Mastodon – Black Tongue tab

Mastodon: "Black tounge" tab

Tuning: Standard D

The main riff bellow is actually played by both guitars in two different tones that 
overlaps each other. I made it possible for you ro play it with only one guitar.

Then after playing this riff, you go back to playing the same thing one more time. It`s basicaly the same structure once again untill you meet the pre-chorus or whatever you`ll call it. "You can run to the sea..."

Then you`ll have to learn this awesome riff (At least i think so). I think it works like a bridge in the song, im not sure ;) But here it is. Guitar I: PM------- PM-------
