Parabola
By Tool
Track 7 on the album Lateralus
 
It works fine in drop d tuning (DADGBE) but it's actually not.
4/4 time
 
PLEASE NOTE all numbers are single digit unless otherwise indicated
--20-- means two, zero; NOT twenty
 
I'm not going to put in slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs,
etc. because they mess up the rhythm and you can figure
them out yourself pretty easily.
