Tuned down 1/2-step
Comments: So much noise on this track it's almost unbelievable. The rhythm
stuff is easy, just two riffs and some chords really, but the solo is both
hard to hear and hard to play. Ace, at least it sounds a lot like his style
when it comes to bends and patterns, plays this very freely in terms of
rhythm and uses a lot of feedback and harmonics. I'm not sure whether the
guitar that doubles the chorus chords is an acoustic or a clean electric,
it sure has that Destroyer anyway.
