Gets faster and faster. Continue pattern up the neck to the 24th fret,



When the band comes in, hold this chord and strike at random
(listen to the recording)


G)---9----
D)---9----
A)---7----
E)---0----

                       then this is the part where Dave starts the scream:

D)--------------------------------------------------------------
A)---7-----------------------5--7-------------------------8--7--
E)-------5--6--7--8---5--7------------5--6--7--8---5--7---------

                                repeat several times.  The last time, hold
the E5 chord again.
this is where it speeds up:

D)-------------4--------5----------------------------4--------------
A)-------------2--------3----------5-----------------2-----------3--
E)---0--0----------0--------0--0---3----0--0--0-----------0--0---1--


                               repeat that several times.  then play:

G)---9-------------9---------------------
D)---9-------------9---------------------
A)---7---7--7--7---7---------------------
E)------------------------0--0--0--0-----

                              the last time, finish with:

D)---4------------
A)---2------3-----
E)----------1-----

                          verse rhythm:

G)---/--9--x--x---9--x--x--x---7---------------------
D)---/--9--x--x---9--x--x--x---7-----7---8---x--x---
A)---/--7--x--x---7--x--x--x---5-----7---8---x--x---
E)-----------------------------------5---6---x--x---

                         repeat several times.  Then play:

G)---------------9--------------4--------------3-------------11--\
D)---------------9--------------4--------------3-------------11--\
A)---------------7--------------2--------------1--------------9--\
E)---0--0--0--------0--0--0-------0--0--0-------0--0--0----------

                              then repeat the verse rhythm with the 2nd
verse.  After that, play:

G)--9--9--9----9---9--9--9----9--------------------------------
D)--9--9--9----9---9--9--9----9-----5--5--5-----5-----4--------
A)--7--7--7----7---7--7--7----7-----5--5--5-----5-----2-----3--
E)----------------------------------3--3--3-----3-----------1--

                                chorus part ( "the skull beneath the skin" )

D)----------------------4---3-------------5---------
A)----------------------2---1-------------5---------    repeat
E)---0--0--0--0--0-----------------0--0---3---0--0--
                               
               
                                  
                                     ending:

D)----------------------4---3------------5----------2--
A)----------------------2---1------------5----------2--
E)---0--0--0--0--0----------------0--0---3----0--0--0--

                    
                               that's all of the rhythm part.
