Great song off this dark album.

Comments:

I will only show the necessary strings throughout this tab.

Notation explanation:
  |-3tr4-|  Trill.  Hammer on and off the 4th fret very quickly.
  |------|

|-5--/7-| Pick the 5th, slide to the 7th and pick it as well. |-------| |-5///7-| Pick the 5th, slide to the 7th.
|3:----| |4:----| Time signature change. Always 4/4 otherwise. |------|
|-/=3=\-| Triplets - play three notes in the space of two. |-3-3-3-| |-------|
Generally one dash is a sixteenth note in length, so ---- is one beat. Sometimes -------- is one beat. Guitars are tuned to Eb. On this album, opposite to all the others, King is the LeftGtr and Hanneman is the RightGtr. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Tempo: 110 bpm
