                Hi, I have seen this song tabbed out too many times now
so I've decided to let everyone know how this song is actually
played! I have seen S.O.A.D live and I have seen how Daron 
(s.o.a.d's guitarist) plays this song. So I'm 99.9% sure this is
how you play "Chop Suey!".

TUNING: 6th 5th 4th 3rd 2nd 1st
        C   G   C   F   A   D         S.O.A.D always tune like that....always!
