    Can't figure it out, but I Have the right idea. Whoever wrote the tabs I found is on something. Someone please point me in the right direction with this song :)

    You do have a five string, right? If not get heavy strings and tune BEAD.

    I'll give you some hints.

    1. Long Slides
    2. Dead Note Triplets
    3. The main riff can be played in first position on a five or a properly tuned four
    4. I believe all the fills in the song are from the pentatonic box

    Hope that helps.

    Here's a whole bunch of different variations. Some of these are terrible but a few are just about right on. I think the key to getting those real quick mutes is to sort of drape your whole arm over the fingerboard (right arm) - at least that's what I've seen Les do when he's playing this.
