Thanks a lot to Yani and Ray for giving me the opportunity to do this.   
Thanks also to my brother for loaning me Soul of a New Machine.

------------------------------------------------------------- 
 
This is, I believe, the first song Fear Factory ever wrote.  They wrote  
it on the Halloween night when they first jammed together.  It is track  
number 13 on their debut album, Soul of a New Machine.  Perhaps because  
it is one of their earlier songs, it does not have Fear Factory's  
trademark keyboard influence so it does lend itself a little more to  
live performance. 
 
Because it is a more "playable" song (so to speak), do not deceive  
yourself:  it is still very trying and very difficult.  If your right  
(picking) hand is not well-trained in tremolo picking and downstroking,  
this will not sound anywhere near good when you try to play it, so make  
sure your picking strategies are up to par. 
 
A good thing to try with Riff A is string muting.  While you play the  
notes, use your inactive fingers to mute the G string, so as to prevent  
unwanted feedback or accidentally hitting the string.  Don't press the  
string all the way down on the fretboard; simply rest your finger on the  
string. 
 
For Riffs D, F, and G, you will need to tremolo pick.  Instead of  
holding your pick in the traditional fashion (between the bottoms of  
your index finger and thumb), try holding the pick between the bottom of  
your thumb and the side of your index finger.  This will allow you to  
increase your speed quite a bit. 
 
Guitars 1 and 2 both tune all strings down a perfect fourth  
(B, E, A, D, F#, B)

Tempo begins slow, and then speeds up significantly 
 
Riff A (played by guitar 1) 
 
Pre-bend (bend the G-string up a half-step, hold, and then begin to  
pick) on the first note, and then gradually lower the string back to its  
normal pitch after about twenty strokes.
