Demonic Refusal by Testament

Chords

Here it is


Testament
"Demonic Refusal"
from "Demonic (11107-2)" track 1  and "Signs of Chaos: The Best of Testament
(11120-2)" track 6
Music by Eric Peterson
Words by Chuck Billy
Published by Burnt Offerings/Fierce/Mayhem
Tabbed by Kevin Burnes
Typed up by Adam de Angeli

Tuning: DADGBE

Wherever you see a double line the riff might split up somewhere
(depending on where in the song you are).  Not all repeats are shown, but
this tab should make it pretty damn easy to learn the song.  For palm mutes,
start at the note above for the next note above the "P" and stop and either
the "|" if given or the "M".  The counting is shown above the staff for
convienience.  The the count is "*  &  a" there are some triplets in there.
Any questions or comments email me.  Effects are just distortion, as far as
I can tell.

Copyrights of song: Testament
Copyrights of transcription: Kevin's

F. Chorus: Time for this part is hard to figure out.  Dotted eighth-sixteenth
patterns are slightly too irregular, triplets are too regular. listen and
just play it like Testament does.
