TUNING: Down 1/2 step

Here's one of the fastest ones on the album (and one of my personal
favorites).

The intro riff, which returns later in the song, is something like this:

e:------2-0--2-0-------3-0--3-0--|
B:-3--------------3--------------|
G:-------------------------------|
D:-------------------------------|
A:-------------------------------|
E:-------------------------------|

If you listen real closely during the intro, you can hear Vinnie saying
something like: "Are ya ready to rrrrrot? Check it out."

The verse riff is a piece of cake.....E5 F#5 E5 D....or it could be E F# E D
depending on what you think sounds better.

e:-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|
B:-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|
G:-----------------------------------|--------------------------------|
D:-2--2--2---2--2---2--2--2--2--2--2-|-4--4--4---4--4---4--4--4--4--4-|
A:-2--2--2---2--2---2--2--2--2--2--2-|-4--4--4---4--4---4--4--4--4--4-|
E:-0--0--0---0--0---0--0--0--0--0--0-|-2--2--2---2--2---2--2--2--2--2-|

e:-----------------------------------|-2--2--2---2--2---2--2--2--2--2--2-|
B:-----------------------------------|-3--3--3---3--3---3--3--3--3--3--3-|
G:-----------------------------------|-2--2--2---2--2---2--2--2--2--2--2-|
D:-2--2--2---2--2---2--2--2--2--2--2-|-0--0--0---0--0---0--0--0--0--0--0-|
A:-2--2--2---2--2---2--2--2--2--2--2-|-----------------------------------|
E:-0--0--0---0--0---0--0--0--0--0--0-|-----------------------------------|

The chorus is two more simple power chords: B5 and G5.

e:-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
B:-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
G:-4--4--4---4--4---4--4--4--4--4--4-|-----------------------------------|
D:-4--4--4---4--4---4--4--4--4--4--4-|-5--5--5---5--5---5--5--5--5--5--5-|
A:-2--2--2---2--2---2--2--2--2--2--2-|-5--5--5---5--5---5--5--5--5--5--5-|
E:-----------------------------------|-3--3--3---3--3---3--3--3--3--3--3-|

When he's saying "Rotting Pinata" over and over you play open D and G chords.

e:-2--2--2--3--3--3--|
B:-3--3--3--3--3--3--|
G:-2--2--2--0--0--0--|
D:-0--0--0--0--0--0--|
A:----------2--2--2--|
E:----------3--3--3--|

This is my attempt at the solo, my favorite on the album. Definitely not
perfect.


e:------------------------------|-------------------------------|
B:------------------------------|-------------------------15\---|
G:-9--9--9--9--9b(11)-11-11~----|-9--9--9--9--9--7--9--7--------|
D:------------------------------|-------------------------------|
A:------------------------------|-------------------------------|
E:------------------------------|-------------------------------|

e:-12-12-12-12-12b(14)-14-14~---|-12-12-12-12---------12---------|
B:------------------------------|-------------10b(12)----12-10---|
G:------------------------------|--------------------------------|
D:------------------------------|--------------------------------|
A:------------------------------|--------------------------------|
E:------------------------------|--------------------------------|

Then he does some stuff with this scale:

e:-7-12-10-7-----------------------|
B:------------10-7-----------------|
G:------------------9--7-----------|
D:------------------------9--7-----|
A:------------------------------10-|
E:---------------------------------|

Then it goes something like this:

e:--------------------------------------------|
B:----10-12-10----10-12-10----10-12-10-12-12~-|
G:-11----------11----------11-----------------|
D:--------------------------------------------|
A:--------------------------------------------|
E:--------------------------------------------|

e:-----------------------------------|--------------10~-------|
B:-12--12-12-10----------------------|------------------------|
G:--------------11-9-----------------|-9b(11)-----------------|
D:--------------------12-9-----9--12-|------------------------|
A:--------------------------12-------|------------------------|
E:-----------------------------------|------------------------|

e:---------------------|
B:---------------------|
G:----9b(11)(9)-7~-----|
D:---------------------|
A:---------------------|
E:---------------------|

Then it's back to the intro riff, verse, and chorus.

LYRICS (a lot of these aren't very clear)

Beat on me
Spill my insides out on the ground
Cut open me
I will go when I say die

I will rot away
(It's a?) rotting pinata
Rotting pinata

Seize our soul
Cut us a hole into the sky
??????
What's the word, ????

Here lies the wreck that was me
Here lies the junk that was me
Oh God help mem rot, I don't look quite the same
Grab my beating heart, take it from this broken cage
Today
I'm rotting

Go away
With red and black I will cross my side
??????
Just pull the plug, yeah, let me die
