I finally decided to release my tabs to the public (check the bottom for the 
reason why I didn't in the first place).

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.

Note: You gotta play this song with style or it wont sound right.

Intro 
Guitar 1         each time you play it bring in a little more distortion
                         The last time around the end changes a bit.

Chino's part
Tuning: ATF tuning
During the first verse before he start singing:
D#|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A#|-3-3-3-3---3-3---3-3-3-3---3-3----3-3-3-3---3-3---3-3-3-3-----------------|

G#|-2-2-2-2---2-2---2-2-2-2---2-2----2-2-2-2---2-2---2-2-2-2---0-------------|
C#|------------------------------------------------------------0-------------|

Then at the end he plays:
its kinda a freestyle so just fool with it. He lets off the 12 sometimes
(watch the writing sessions on the CD).

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.. i actually saw the 
deftones play this song in DC on the first show of their guerilla tour, i was right 
up on the gate.. i'm pretty sure this tab is the way chino was playing it on his SG,
and of course stef was using his new 7-string, but i think he was just mainly 
thickening things up, it sounds perfect on a 6-string tuned down 1/2 step with 
the low-E dropped a half step

the verse riff is played with that cool rhythm, notice that chino throws a few bends 
in there every now and them, if you're having trouble picking it up, check out the CD 
extras, i'm pretty sure i saw a clip of chino playing it and you can see what i mean

the stuff in parenthesis is optional, but it helps

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