System Of A Down - Needles
Transcribed by - Daniel Thomason (Deftones136212@aol.com)
Tuning - Drop D, Down 1 Whole Step (C, G, C, F, A, D, low to high)
Great song from their new CD "Toxicity". This is my first SOAD tab,
but it sounds pretty accurate to me.

Key:
P.M. - Palm Mute
p - Pull off
h - Hammer on
- Slide down

Intro: Gradually release the palm mute throughout the riff and use pinch harmonics
the last few times you repeat the riff
D--4p3----4p3----4p3----4p3---------
A------3------3------3------3-------
F-----------------------------------
C-----------------------------------
G-----------------------------------
