Freak Tab

   
This song is extremely easy considering it is in dropped D and 
only uses the bottom three strings (except for the solo).  
Just listen to the song and apply that to the tabs.  I have 
included all of the hidden notes and the solo.

Dropped D Tuning

^ - bend and release
h - hammer on
/ - slide up
\ - slide down

Riff A x4

Riff B x2

Many people miss some of the hidden notes in this riff but 
if you listen to the song closely you can here them.

     “Yeah…I’m a freak…of nature”

After you play Riff B twice play this and let it ring.

Riff C x2

A lot of people think that this riff is the same as Riff A, 
but if you listen close you can hear the difference.

   “Body and soul, I’m a freak, I’m a freak…”

Then you play Riff A twice followed by Riff B.  Then play this:

    “Body and soul, I’m a freak, I’m a freak…”

Solo (Riff E is played in the background but without Palm Muting)

The whole solo is 32nd notes, so you must pick out each note very 
quickly and keep playing it nonstop.  Listen to the song and you 
will figure it out very easy.  It helps to use a very light pick 
here.

Riff E x4 (No Palm Muting this time)

Riff A x2

And that’s it!  This is a very fun song to play so experiment and
 find new ways to make it sound.  Have fun and keep playing!
