Original Prankster guitar tab

Tabbed By: John Kowalik (jkowalik@home.com), edited by: Sam Ewald GenocidalSociety@aol.com)
Tabbed For: Guitar
Song Title: Original Prankster
Album: Conspiracy Of One
Tab:
----------------------------------------------------------
pm - palm mute
\ - slide down
f - finger lift
(*) - Played by Dex.

Now I'm basically positive that this is it. Note that most parts
are repeated with some very slight differences almost every time.
If you want to know how to play this song exactly, I suggest you
play it to the tab, rather than memorizing the three basic parts
that are repeated.
