PSYCHO HOLIDAY

				By Pantera

Transcribed by Denzil (aka Khalil Yousaf), aged 15, e-mail yousaf@dircon.co.uk

This is one of my favourite Pantera songs and so I thought I'd tab it out just for fun, as you do (not!). To capture Pantera's sound, you'll need very heavy distortion, a little chorus (not too much) and use the neck pickup. The solo is pretty difficult and there's no doubt that I've probably made a couple of mistakes but most of it's fairly accurate.
	One of the hardest things abut this piece is keeping that chugging triplet rhythm going while you have the 4/4 time going in your head. Ah well, good luck I guess....a metronome will be perfect for this exercise.
	Hey I may be only 15 but have a look anyway....the solo's note-perfect, almost :)

Have fun! Shred yer ballz off...:) This is probably Dimebag's most difficult and technical solo and if you can accomplish this, the rest should be easy...Far Beyond Driven licks a cinch....

Very fast and tricky bit coming up....real finger stretches needed
As this is a symmetrical-ish run it's easier than it looks and feels...you may be able to get away with tapping the 22nd frets, I find it easier to stretch, but I have pretty big
 hands, almost 30cm span!
