Learn the song with the online tablature player
s = slide
/ = slide while picking
h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
H = hold/ring
b = bend

This is a tough song to tab out coz it's a 10 minute song with no repeats, but no one
has done
the full thing so here it is for anyone who wanted to say that "I can play all of
Coma, can
you?"
Use Chorus/Flanger when necessary and use a pick.
