Tuning: DADGBE

Wherever you see a double line the riff might split up somewhere
(depending on where in the song you are).  Not all repeats are shown, but
this tab should make it pretty damn easy to learn the song.  For palm mutes,
start at the note above for the next note above the "P" and stop and either
the "|" if given or the "M".  The counting is shown above the staff for
convienience.  The the count is "*  &  a" there are some triplets in there.
Any questions or comments email me.  Effects are just distortion, as far as
I can tell.

F. Chorus: Time for this part is hard to figure out. Dotted eighth-sixteenth patterns are slightly too irregular, triplets are too regular. listen and just play it like Testament does.
