                Hey, this is the tab for the song Locust by Machine Head.
It's the advance mix version they released as a single before the album 'Unto the 
Locust' which isn't released yet while I'm typing this :)
I did the main riffs and tabbed only what I play when I 
play along with the track.

Tuning is drop B but I think you have to go a 
half semi-tone up so you're in between drop B and drop C,
 sounds a bit better

Harmonize during 5th and 6th time 
(I usually play this part instead of the other when I play with the track)
                                        !Clean!

Then some cool, fast riff I can't play, 
I play the chords on the background there
________________________________________________________________________________________
According to 'motortallica' it goes like this
[---------------------]
[---------------------]
[--10-9-7---------7-9-]
[---------10-8-10-----]X2

                                                                                       _ _

B |--------------------------------------------------------------------|    /    \    /_ _ _
                                      



And repeat those 2 riffs

And then this harmony


C#|-------------------------------8-10-8-------------|
G#|-------------8----8-10-8-10-11--------11-10-------|
E |-7-9-10-9-10---10---------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------|
F#|--------------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------| x2


C#|-10---12---13---15---17---17----|
G#|-13b--15b--16b--18b--20b--20b---|
E |--------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------|
F#|--------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------|

C#|----------------------------|
G#|-20b--18--20b--18--20b--18--|
E |----------------------------|
B |----------------------------|
F#|----------------------------|
B |----------------------------|
Bend up and then back down and then hit the eighth fret

C#|-------------------------------|
G#|-------------------------------|
E |-------------------------17-18-|
B |-------------------17-19-------|
F#|----------17-19-20-------------|
B |-17-19-20----------------------|

Then the fast soloish riff with power chords behind


C#|-------------------------------|
G#|-------------------------------|
E |-------------------------------|
B |-3--------5--------7--------10-|
F#|-1--------3--------5--------8--|
B |-------------------------------| x2

C#|--------------------------------------------------|
G#|--------------------------------------------------|
E |--------------------------------------------------|
B |-3--------5--------7--------10-------3--------5---|
F#|-1--------3--------5--------8--------1--------3---|
B |--------------------------------------------------|

C#|----------------------------------------------------------|
G#|----------------------------------------------------------|
E |----------------------------------------------------------|
B |0---0---0---0-2---3-0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0-----|
F#|----------------------------------------------------------|
B |--0---0---0-----0-----0---0---0---0---2---2---2---7---8-5-|
                                      !Clean!

Now the chorus (with the octave chords) twice

C#|--------------------------------------------------|
G#|--------------------------------------------------|
E |--------------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------|
F#|--------------------------------------------------|
B |-3-2-1-2-1-0-3-2-1-2-1-0-3-2-1-2-1-0-6-5-4-7-6-5--|
But gradually slow down the 3,2,1 and 0's, it's easy if you listen to the song

C#|--------------------------------------------------|
G#|--------------------------------------------------|
E |--------------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------|
F#|--------------------------------------------------|
B |-0----6---5----3---5----0-------------------------|

That was it, I hope you liked it
