This is a really heavy song, and it is difficult to play.  So I recommend playin' it 
and then working,
your way up to the slipknot speed.  So practice makes perfect.  The tuning for this song 
A E A D F# B.


Intro: This part is pretty simple but the open power chords have to be played really really fast.  This
      is a good excercise for your alternate picking.
