Nile - Opening Of The Mouth tab

Tuning: A E A D F# B

Note: In some riffs, I have put extra time stamps for additional
help, as the long passages of tremolo picking can get very confusing.
Hopefully this makes the tab as easy to read as possible.


Intro A: (Egyptian flute) (0:00)

Solo: This is just a rough approximation as to what Karl's playing but it should be good enough to play along to the CD with.
