I have tabbed out the few non-backwards songs beneath this writing.
This is definatley a weaker tab (Only 5 guitar songs), as this album
was cut in just a few days, and from the sounds of it, alot was
improvised.As a result, there are small variations here and there I
have not tabbed because I think anyone of you can figure them out on
your own (They're just alterations on notes already tabbed).

NOTE: This part is heavily improvised on. Very often changed up, but still the same notes.
