This is great song. It's really atmospheric, but has

lightning fast guitar parts to it, and a smooth tom-tom

intro or something.

It's a pretty fast guitar piece, but when you get it, it's

nice and satisfying.

My tab is NOT complete, so if you can fill it in, please do so.

 

Standard Tuning. (EADGBE)
