Note: This song is really played on a 5-String Bass if I could get my hands on
one I would tab that out but I can't so here you go.

Tuning:Here is Stephen's REAL tuning G#,C#,F#,B,E,G#,C#. Thats 4 1/2 steps down
from regular tuning and 2 1/2 steps down for 7 string. I play these on a regular
Guitar so I don't have the extra C# but it still sounds 99-100% correct.

once again, i know Jonathan Mojica already posted the tab to this song, 
but since he tabbed it for a baritone (which i don't have, and i'm sure not
many people do) i've adapted/tweaked the tab for a more standard deftones tuning.. 

the verse riff can be a little tricky, the palm mute on the low string is subtle, 
and stef is using some weird processing which can be faked using some slight pinch 
harmonics every here and there, but i have yet to get it sounding perfect..

so here's the tab for all of us who don't have a baritone

* = palm mute
