. = Palm Mute

Every part to this song, in order, and how many times you need to play it
is included in this tab. You really need to follow the song well, since
the groove in this song is very stand-out, and missing even one beat will
sound bad. Though, it's not a very difficult song. Only the Chorus is
quite tricky at times. There is one other logical way to play it, but it's
just as hard. And, I believe that the Chorus and Outro sections, just the
chords, are the way they are written. Though you can play the Chorus the
same way as the Outro, you can notice the deepness of the Chords. In the
Chorus, the non-open chords on the D and G strings sound thinner than
playing it on the A and D strings. I believe this is for dynamics, and to
lead into the pull-offs. But if you notice the Outro, it is very deep and
heavy, though the Chords are essentially the same as the Chorus, just on the
thickest strings. I hope you pay attention to this, as it's very important
to the dynamics of the song. And, when you play the Outro, play with up-down
strokes, not all down strokes, it helps keep the heavy-riffage smooth. And
for the tremolo, I've included the right ammount of tremolo picks, so study
them closely before you go on a shredding spree. Have fun!

There's the whole *** thing. One of FF's heaviest songs to date,
including the Archetype album. It's a very fun song to play, so crank
