The album version of this song is very muddy. I want everyone to listen to this live version. This is the crispest live version I have ever heard as far as the bass is concerned. You can follow along and see where I am coming from.

then click on …the grudge. The bass is crisp and trebly.

NOTE There are variations in this next riff.(I have not tabbed them yet)
I.E. – on the second half .. GIVE away the stone, LET the waters KISS and TRANS-MUTATE
During those words in bold, he is accenting different notes, following Danny’s drums.

Envelope Filter, Auto Wah, or Wah On...**NOTE, he only does this effect live, not on album version.**
