*while watching videos of Torche when Juan was still in the band, you can see him doing some fairly different things every time he plays this song. sometimes he plays what i've tabbed, others he just improvises and does a series of pulloffs and bends, etc etc. so, i tabbed it as an octaved version of the lower part, which is how Steve was playing it live (with assistance from a pedal) when they were a three piece.* bridge x2

guitar 2: this part is basically just very rapid strumming on an A chord played at the 14th fret, the D note (15th fret/b string) comes in after the heavy riff has repeated 4 times, plays for two cycles of that, and goes back to the C# note for the last remaining cycle of the heavy riff. i'm confident that almost anyone can pick out the proper rhythm/tempo to strum at, so i took the lazy way out in tabbing this section.

There aren't many Torche tabs online, and the ones out there aren't overly accurate, so I decided to give it a shot. I personally enjoy play this song on a guitar tuned AEADBGE, i find that playing the heavy end riffs with full power chords sounds as good as playing it as an octave/5th chord like on the record. but, do whatever works for you! email me at ifrigginshred at hotmail dot com with any comments/corrections. hope this helps.
