Twist Of Cain by Danzig

Tabs with lyrics

This is my first attempt at tabbing.  I picked this song because it was
fairly simple (no solo!).   Listen to the song to get down the correct
timings.  Riffs Chord diagramA augmentedA and Chord diagramC majorC especially have a very bluesy feel to them.

Notes:

(1) I'm not sure exactly what John Christ is doing here.  There may be an
    overdubbed tone on this note.  You really need lots of distortion to make
    it squeal.  I think a cranked tube amp like a Marshall with a touch of
    feedback does the trick!

(2) I think this actually sounds better just playing the 4th and 5th strings,
    which is why I put the 6th string note in parentheses.  It has a stronger
    sound to it, since the flatted 5th isn't swallowed up by both the root and
    octave tones.

TAB: TWIST OF CAIN (Intro) by Danzig
ALBUM: DANZIG


        This is my basic guesse that I did using an acustic
        guitar. This is my first attempt at play by ear so
        don't haggle me if it is wrong!
