  Greetings fellow X-heads!!!

  This is my first attempt at guitar tab, so please bear with me if it
isn't
  100% perfect. The song is played in standard A chord diagramE MajorE tuning.  If you find this
tab
  helpful, please drop me an email and let me know. It's nice to know the
work
  involved in writing this is appreciated. Writing tab is harder than it
looks!


  Key:

  b = bend
  x = mute string
  ~ = bend back and forth quickly with finger like you would end a flashy

solo.


  Ok... L-L-L-L-L-L-L-L-L-L-L-LETS GO!!!

guitar

   Riff #4:
   --------
   There are 2 guitars present on this part - the bass does the single
notes,
   and the guitar just does the power chords and harmonics.  I tabbed this
so
   you can play both with one guitar (that's how I do it anyway).

   Be sure to let the power chords and harmonics ring as long as you can
   before switching back to the single note riff.

  Solo:
  -----
  It's really hard to hear the note that is inbetween the first and last

note
  played in this solo piece.  I'm pretty I got the right one, but don't
hold it
  against me if I wrote down the wrong one.  This is how I play it live and
  nobody's complained...  yet!

  Sound tip:
  ----------

  To get your guitar to sound like the MXC theme recording, I recommend a
lot
  of distortion with either an Overdrive or heavy metal pedal. I have a
Fender
  Cyclone II as well as an American Deluxe Stratocaster, and both sound
good
  using a tube amp with either setup:

  1. Amp distortion w/Boss Super Overdrive
  2. Clean amp with DOD's Death Metal pedal.

  Right you are Ken!

  and remember.........DON'T GET ELIMINATED!!!!!!!!!
