Lateralus Tab

This tab is 100% correct, taken from several live videos, this is exactly what he plays. 
It's very tricky at first, but with practice it sounds great.
Any questions E-mail me @ Tmx88@aol.com

Legend:  

h- hammer on,
p - pull off
pm - palm mute
x - mute
\ - slide,
v - vibrato
b - bend, 

*Distortion for this song = Boss MT-2 and ME-50 users(mt-2 setting), Drive 3/4,
bass 1/2, tone 1/2. 
That should give you the closest sound. 

(clean, delay)
