(Note: I know this has been posted before, but it didn't sound quite right to me. This is how I play it and it sounds much closer, in my opinion.) ??BURNING INSIDE (A. Jourgensen/P. Barker/W. Rieflin/C. Connelley)??

(Note: The timing on these two riffs is the same, I just spaced it out to fit those palm-muted A's in.) (Note: For chorus, when Al is screaming "Burning inside!" Play the tail end of the VERSE riff, but sped up.) ??NEVER BELIEVE (A. Jourgensen/P. Barker/C. Connelley)?? VERSE

(Note: There is a solo, but I'm not good with those. If anyone can figure it out, please upload it.) ??CANNIBAL SONG (A. Jourgensen/P. Barker/C. Connelley)?? (Note: There is no guitar in this song, just bass, drums, and saxophones. I figured the bass out on a guitar, so it may be a little off. The saxophones are beyond me.)

??SO WHAT (A. Jourgensen/P. Barker/W. Rieflin/C. Connelley)?? (Note: This was previously posted and sounds absolutely fine, so there is no reason for me to re-type it.) ??TEST (A. Jourgensen/P. Barker/W. Rieflin/K. Lite)?? MAIN RIFF

??DREAM SONG (A. Jourgensen/P. Barker)?? (Note: This song is pretty much all keyboards and drum noises, I couldn't find any guitar to transcribe in it.) That's it. It sounds pretty much correct. The only area where I would say it might be wrong is in "Breathe," because I'm not really sure whether that first chord is an E5 or if it should be a D5, which would necessitate tuning down. I've played it both ways and find it kind of hard to tell the difference. However, that's the only one I'm not sure on. Enjoy.
