Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: Instant classic. Gene plays some cool counterpoint here using
the A minor pentatonic scale for the most part. I think it's interesting
that he changes octaves right in the middle of that interlude. The riff
that ends the song is so firmly imbedded in anyone who has ever listened
to this song it's ridiculous.


Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t    = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
(\)  = Dive w\bar
(/)  = Release w\bar
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum
