Tab Notes

     This evolved from random riffing I did around October 30 (2011). I tried to have a Megadeth vibe by using E minor powerchords with some chromatics, a tempo change (double time at Riff 2), and the flat 5/tritone note played against the E (root) note that is present in the classic Megadeth sound. I also added a 2nd guitar at the beginning of Riff 2 to add atmosphere/buildup.
