Slayer guitar tabs for Behind the crooked cross

Guitar tabs with lyrics

Comments:

I didn't even attempt to do the solos.

Throughout the song, play all downpicks.  I know it's fast and your wrist
starts to hurt.  Quit whining.  Slayer is supposed to hurt.

As usual, guitars are tuned to Eb.  Hanneman has the left stereo channel.

Tempo 220 bpm  (ie crazy fast)
