Standard Tuning (E A D G B E)

This tab describes the entire rhythm-guitar section of this song and the clear
parts of the lead-guitar section. I think it should be quite close (at least it
sounds good :), but if you notice errors or have some additions/suggestions/
questions, don't be afraid to send an email.

I didn't figure out the exact timing and number of times to strike etc. in this
tab, as it should be easy to hear by listening to the song. The space between
the notes is just a rough indication of time. Nearly everywhere you'll have to
let the notes ring, so this is also not indicated.

Also note this is certainly NOT my favourite Mayhem song...

  strike them softly)

 It seems there's also another guitar playing some lead-riffs. I believe
 those riffs are based on riff 5 (lead), although many notes and all
 harmonics are omitted.


(5:39)
Riff 4a: 1x
Riff 4b: 1x


(6:13)
Guitars & drums silent, some noise on background; Maniac's vocals echoing out.


(7:54)
Choir aahs enter; Maniac starts 'singing' again.


(8:30)
Guitars & drums re-enter.
Riff 5a:
 Rhythm Guitar:
 E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 G|-----5----------6--------5-------10-------------9----9\6-6--6--6---------|
 D|-4---5----------6--------5-------10-------------9----9\6-6--6--6---------|
 A|-4---3----------4--------3--------8-------------7----7\4-4--4--4---------|
 E|-2-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

 Lead Guitar:
 E|--------------------H-------------------------------------H-------------H|
 B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 G|-----5---5h6p5--6-6/8-\6-5--8-5--10---10/12-\10-9----9\6-6--6----6-8-6-5-|
 D|-4-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
 A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 (there are some high-pitched harmonics in this riff, indicated with an H on
  the high-E string; playing the 9-harmonic on the G-string is the best way
  to reproduce them I think)


Riff 5b:
 Rhythm Guitar:
 E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 G|-----4----------5--------4--------9----8--------8\5-5--5--5---5-5-5------|
 D|-4---4----------5--------4--------9----8--------8\5-5--5--5---5-5-5------|

 PM                                                              . . .

 Lead Guitar:
 E|---------------------------------------------------|
 B|---------------------------------------------------| ...and then a very
 G|---------------------------------------------------| interesting composition
 D|-----4---4h5p4--5-5/7-\5-4--------9----9/11----/12-| of hammer-ons, pull-offs
 A|---------------------------------------------------| etc... someone else's
 E|---------------------------------------------------| turn to tab them out. :)
