                                 DARKNESS WITHIN - MACHINE HEAD

Alright, the song's in drop B which is B F# B E G# C#
It might actually be a quarter sharp than standard but oh well.
You need a capo to play parts of the solo and the part after the solo.
If you dont have a capo, tie a sock tightly around the 3rd fret or somethin.
Or just go buy one to make your life easier!


I love this song... have fun with it ladies and gentlemen!

Alright now this tapping part is weird.
There's a few ways you can play this, here's all of them.

1. You can sweep it or pick it fast

C#|-13-10----------10-13-10----------10-------|
G#|-------10----10----------10----10----------|
E |-------------------------------------------|
B |----------12----------------12-------------|twice
F#|-------------------------------------------|
B |-------------------------------------------|

C#|-12-10----------10-12-10----------10-15p10----13p10----12p10----13--|
G#|-------10----10----------10----10----------10-------10-------10-----|
E |--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B |----------12----------------12--------------------------------------|
F#|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------------------------|

2. Put a capo on the 3rd fret to get the B and tap it .
   It look super confusing but it's really easy once you get
   the notes right. (This is how i do it.)

So the Capo would be holding down the "3's"

Slower part:

C#|---------------------------------------|
G#|-t18p15p10p3h10h15-t18p15p10p3h10h15---|
E |---------------------------------------|
B |---------------------------------------|
F#|-----------this-twice------------------|
B |---------------------------------------|

C#|----------------------------------------|
G#|-t17p15p10p3h10h15-t17p15p10p3h10h15----|
E |----------------------------------------|
B |----------------------------------------|
F#|----------------------------------------|
B |----------------------------------------|

The fast part (it's extremely fast):

C#|----------------------------------------------------|
G#|-t20p15t20p15p10p3h10h15--t18p15t18p15p10p3h10h15---|
E |----------------------------------------------------|
B |----------------------------------------------------|
F#|----------------------------------------------------|
B |----------------------------------------------------|

C#|----------------------------------------------------|
G#|-t17p15t17p15p10p3h10h15--t18p15t18p15p10p3h10h15---|
E |----------------------------------------------------|
B |----------------------------------------------------|
F#|----------------------------------------------------|
B |----------------------------------------------------|

3. The last way is to tune your G# string to a B.
   This wouldnt work if you are playing the whole song
   but oh well... works for this part.
   You can figure it out for yourself if you want to do
   it that way.

Anyways, here's the last part of the solo:

C#|-17b18r17-13----13--17b18r17-13----13--17b18r17---|
G#|-------------15-----------------15----------------|
E |--------------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------|
F#|--------------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------|


C#|-17-18-20-18-17-18-17-15-17-15-13-15-13-12--------|
G#|--------------------------------------------------|
E |--------------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------|
F#|--------------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------|

Again, the capo works for this part.

C#|-------------------------------------------------------------|
G#|-3h5h6-3h6h8-3h8h10-3h10h11-3h11h13-3h13h15-3h15h17-3h17h18--|
E |-------------------------------------------------------------|
B |-------------------------------------------------------------|
F#|-------------------------------------------------------------|
B |-------------------------------------------------------------|

C#|------------------|
G#|-3h18h20-3h20h22--|
E |------------------|
B |------------------|
F#|------------------|
B |------------------|

Post solo riff (capo on 3 still):

C#|-----------------------8---10---10--|
G#|-3-3-3-3--3-3-8-3-10-3---3----3-----|
E |-7-7-9-7-10-7-7-7--7-7-7-7--7-7--7--|
B |------------------------------------|
F#|------------------------------------|
B |------------------------------------|

BREAKDOWN!
     *7's are natural harmonics*

C#|---------------------------------------------|
G#|---------------------------------------------|
E |-------------------------------------7---7---|
B |------------------------------------7-----7--|
F#|---------------------------------------------|
B |-3~-000-000-2~-000-000-1~-000-000--0---0-----|
pm     *** ***    *** ***    *** ***


C#|-------------------------------------------------|
G#|-------------------------------------------------|
E |-------------------------------------------------|
B |-------------------------------------------------|
F#|-------------------------------------------------|
B |-3~-000-000-2~-000-000-1~-000-000--6-5-3--6-5-3--|


I'm sure anyone can figure out the rest because it's all the same
as other parts in the song.

Hope you enjoy!
Like I said, email with questions if ya got 'em.
Have a good one!
