Pantera tabs for Cowboys from hell

Guitar tabs with lyrics

[2 versions]

Here is another great tune by Pantera from their first album, "Cowboys From
Hell".  A chord diagramA augmentedA few notes about the song itself:  Darrell uses some wicked
finger stretches in his solo.  I advise to seriously warm up your left hand,
especially the pinky.  Other than that, just throw your amp on
mega-distortion, give it a little chorus for breathing room, and throw your
pickup switch up to the neck and rock!  Have fun and good luck.
