			 AERIALS - System Of A Down
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Donald Morrison
Email: atwa@hotmail.com

Tuning: Drop D and one step down (C-G-C-F-A-D)

KEY:

-On tab:
N\  - slide down from fret N
(N) - note is tied to previous note, where N is the fret number

-Below tab:
*   - palm-mute note

-Above tab:
N/4 - timing, where N is the number of beats per measure
xN  - repeat N times (repeated parts are marked by a double vertical line
     at start and finish)
x   - duration of note where x equals: w (whole note), h (half
      note), q (quarter note), e (eighth note), or s (sixteenth
      note); note that x. represents 1.5x
+x  - used when note is tied to previous one; x indicates duration
      (see above)
-   - allow note to ring out for an unspecified amount of time - found at
      the end of some songs


NOTE: This song has quite unusual timing during the intro and chorus,
following a 3, 3, 3, 3, 4 pattern.  Although it could easily be written as
4/4 timing, I prefer to look at it as alternating between 3/4 and 2/4
timing.  Also, according to some people, the -3-2-0- etc part of the intro
and chorus is played only by the bass, while Daron only plays open strings.
Either way I have included it in this tab.
