Hammer Smashed Face Confusion

Discussion in 'Tablature and Notation [BG]' started by xolin, May 5, 2006.


  1. Hey,..Ive played this song off the powertab ive had for a while, but every tab out there is different and when I saw them live, most of the song was played up the neck and i think some different notes. Does anyone have the REAL way to play this?

    Cannibal Corpse is quite excellent.

    I just learned from guitar tabs and vids to see what position he's in.
    Guitar tabs don't have the solo but i think this is it. (album version)

    Tuned down 1/2 step

    ------------------
    ------------------
    7-6-9-8---8-----
    ---------7----6-5

    ------------------
    ------------------
    7-6-9-8---8-----
    ---------7----6-5

    ------------------
    -----9-------------
    7-6----8---8-----
    ----------7----6-5

    ------------------
    -----9-------------
    7-6----8---8-----
    ----------7----6-5

    hopefully the tab doesn't come out jumbled
     
  3. The bass solo is played differently on live recordings than on the Tomb of the Mutilated album.

    Album:
    |-----------------|
    |-------3---------|
    |-2---2---3---3---|
    |---0-------1---0-|

    Live:
    |----------------|
    |7-----4---------|
    |--6-5-------5-4-|
    |--------5-4-----|

    Alex is also a monstrous badass, and probably improvises the solo every night a little bit differently.
