/ Forbidden / Green (1988) / Phat guitar tab

pHat by Forbidden
                     tabbed by Aaron Richards

  does anybody besides me listen to Forbidden? unfortunately they are no
  longer a band but they have some really good shit on CD. this song is
  really heavy and some of it's hard to hear, but i did my best.  all the
  guitar is basically a variation on two different riffs.  Tune down about
  one whole step. oh yeah, and part of this song has a weird time sig.

  Gtr. 1- left spkr.

            play  3x                        4th time

  Gtr.2 plays the same thing as gtr. 1 for this 1st part. there is also a
  gtr. 3 ( overdubbed) that plays something like this:

     i'm not gonna bother writing exactly how the rest goes, cos it's just
     alot of riffs a & a1 and putting in the fills 1 & 2 in some places ,
     except for verse 3 which is the same as verse 1 and 2. this song ends
     on a
