For those who didn't realize this, Himsa has two guitarist who are very
harmonious. Previous Himsa tabs I have seen have been attempts to mesh the
two guitars into one, which is wrong. When youíre reading the tab, make sure
youíre following the one guitarist the whole time, donít mesh the two. It takes
to guitarists to play, so don't try to play it all at the same time. I am
confident that this tab is almost perfect. This is my first tab and it took a
while! So enjoy.

P.S. As it is my first tab, the organization of the tab could be much better.
The riffs are all there, I just hope it isnít too confusing.
