                                                                        Mastodon

I was finally able to decipher this crazy song. Here are all the riffs in relative 
order, repeat as neccesary.
Some parts are not 100% correct, but pretty close.

 Then comes the heavy 3/4 riff. Not sure if this is correct, but it's a fun riff
