** Cause of Death
** by OBITUARY
** from the album 'Cause of Death'
** Transcribed by Kevin Phillips, kphill@iconz.co.nz

Here is a groovy, semi-funky song from the album of the same name.
This album is one of my all time fav's - lots of atmosphere, sound Fx, and
some cool grinding guitar noises.. Also one hell of a great Drum mix!

As always, RIFF's are first, then Song STRUCTURE.  'x' means a palm-mute,
and I apologise for any mistakes..  If somebody fixes something, can you
email me with it so I can update my tab collection?  Thanks!

For those who are interested, I have also Tabbed 'INFECTED' and 'MEMORIES 
REMAIN', but seem to have misplaced the tab sheets somewhere for now..
Will get them uploaded soon.. Anybody else got TAB from this great album 
that they'd like to share?

Enjoy..

**Missing Riff Here:
There is one fast riff that sounds easy to play but has a slurred sound to it.
If anyone can Tab this one and email it to me, I would appreciate it!

                               **SPECIAL NOTE:**
******************************************************************************
Note that Obituary uses a lot of slight variations in their riffing.  One time
a riff may have a C5-chord like:  D:--5--
                                  A:--3--
                                  E:-----

Whereas, the next time around, they get more 'Grind' into it by using:
                                  D:--5--
                                  A:--3--
                                  E:--3--
