This is just my interpretation. Ive tried, in places, to show
picking patterns which I found to be essential in getting the
sound. Of course, as this is Gorguts (Obscura) dont expect it
to be precise. Just use it as a tool.
You will need to listen to the CD for timing, accentuation, and
harmonics.

I have left all playing explanations at the end of the tab for
easier reading.
Ivan's old tab helped throughout, and the first riff is
entirely his transcription. For anything thats right, thank
Ivan, anything thats wrong, blame me.

For the outro just loosen your top string and slap it against the fretboard.



Performance notes:
Throughout the song, and in the later riffs, alot of things are bent,
but only half a step at most. Its loose playing so try to keep
that in mind throughout.

In Riff 2, for the chords, mute them quite heavy and pull off
the root notes quickly once played to get it sounding like the
CD. And hammer on that octave note with your left hand only. If you dont,
dont worry about it. It just sounds like theres more depth to it.

Riff 5
On a 22 fret guitar, you tap with the edge of your pick between
the end of the neck and the bridge pick up, causing the pick up
to be used as a fret. Then pull off to the fretted notes and
bend them, so the only attack on the notes you get is on 18th
fret and 24th fret.

For a 24 fret guitar just tap on the 24th fret as normal.

Riff 6
Very quick slides. Listen to CD for timing.[/code]
