Chop Suey Tab

   
There is a lot of overdubbing in this song. For the intro, Riff 1 is
played four times: once by itself, the second time accompanied by
Riff 2, and the third and fourth times accompanied by Riff 2 and 3.

For the chorus, Daron plays a slight variation of Riff 2 and Riff 3. He
also plays riff using a bouzouki during the chorus and towards the end
of the song. If you are wondering which part is played by the bouzouki,
it is the instrument that plays the notes Serj is singing when he says
"self-rightous suicide" and "angels deserve to die". The bouzouki adds
a nice piano-like sound.

The asterisks (*) mean that the measures are repeated. If you have
any comments, suggestions, or want to point out a mistake, please email
me.
