                Tuning: B-E-A-D-G
Notes:
- These are just the basic outlines of the riffs
- Add alot of fills (pops, chords, mutes, taps, hammer-ons etc.)
- Played on a 6-string but can be played on a 5
- Played on a fretless (I think) so the notes aren't perfect
- Use medium distortion
- This is played pretty fast
- Add alot of variations!!!

v - Downstroke with fingernails
^ - Upstroke
S - Slap
P - Pop
