Desire guitar tab

Desire 
				      By: Slayer 
			     Tabbed by: David Schellhaas 
 
I am only writing the bottom 5 strings since the 1st string isn't used  
at all in the rythm 
guitars in the song.  Actually, my 1st string was broken when I figured  
this song out!  Also 
I don't think I marked "Gtr.1" and "Gtr.2" consistently.  So, basically,  
I may say "Gtr.1 play 
this", then later on I have it play a riff that the other guitar plays  
on the album.  I just 
wanted to say that so nobody would get confused for some reason. 
 
Tuning:  Db, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, eb (Tune half step down, then bring 6th  
string down 1 step) 
 
Introduction Riffs: 
 
Gtr. 1 play this x4 
Bb|-----8-------------8------------ 
Gb|--------7-------------7--------- 
Db|--0--------5---0---------------- 
Ab|-------------------------------- 
Db|-------------------------------- 
 
Now Gtr. 2 plays this x4 
Bb|-------------------------------6---------9----- 
Gb|--------7----------6--------3----3----6----6--- 
Db|-----5----5-----4----4--0----------0----------- 
Ab|--5----------5--------------------------------- 
Eb|----------------------------------------------- 
Let Ring throughout------->>> 
 
Now both guitars get distortion and play this once 
Bb|----------------------------- 
Gb|--------7-----------8-------- 
Db|-----5----5-----6------------ 
Ab|--5----------5--------------- 
Eb|----------------------------- 
 
Now guitars 1 & 2 play the MAIN RIFF x4 
Bb|------------------------------------------ 
Gb|-------7--------6--------10---------13---- 
Db|--0-5----5--0-4---4--0-8----8--0-11---11-- 
Ab|------------------------------------------ 
Eb|------------------------------------------ 
 
Now Gtr.2 plays this riff.  Since it's played a lot, I'm gonna call it  
RIFF 666 
so I can refer to it later on. 
Bb|--------------------------------------- 
Gb|--------------------------------------- 
Db|--1-------1--------1-------------6----- 
Ab|--1-------1--------1-------------6----- 
Eb|--1--0-0--1--0-000-1--0-0-0-000--6----- 
      pm----    -----    --------- 
 
Gtr.1 comes in while gtr.2 is playing that.  It plays this: 
Bb|------------------------------- 
Gb|------------------------------- 
Db|--6--0--------(0)---------6--- 
Ab|--6--0--------(0)---------6--- 
Eb|--6--0--------(0)---------6--- 
 
That leads into the VERSE 
 
Guitar 1 
Bb|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
Gb|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
Db|-----0--------------------0------------------------0---------------------0-------------------| 
Ab|--------1---0---3-6-5--------1--0--1-----5/8-7--------1---0---3-6-5*--------1--0--1----5/8-7-| 
Eb|--00-------------------00----------------5/8-7--00--------------------00---------------5/8-7-| 
  |pm--                   --                       --  
                   --                     | 
  |Guitar 2  
                                                                                    | 
Bb|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
Gb|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
Db|-----0--------------------0------------------------0---------------------0-------------------| 
Ab|--------1---0---3-6-5--------1--0--1-----5/8-7--------1---0---3-6-5*--------1--0--1----5/8-7-| 
Eb|--00-------------------00----------------5/8-7--00--------------------00---------------5/8-7-| 
   pm--                   --                       --  
                   --                  
 
* = In the second verse, play an Artificial Harmonic here 
 
They both play that once, then while Gtr.1 plays it again, Gtr.2 decides  
to play some other stuff. 
Here's what it plays: 
Bb|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
Gb|----------------------------------------------------------5-8-7~--------------------------| 
Db|-----0----------3-5-6~----0----------------------0--------------------0-------------------| 
Ab|--------1---0----------------1--0--1---5/8-7-------1---0-----------------1--0--1---5/8-7--| 
Eb|--00-------------------00--------------5/8-7--00-------------------00--------------5/8-7--| 
  pm---                   --                     --                   -- 
 
Right before the chorus, one of the guitars plays this: 
"RIFF B.L.A.H." 
Bb|---------------------------------------| 
Gb|---------------------------------------| 
Db|---5-5-5-5--4-4-4-4--1-1-1-1--4-4-4-4--| 
Ab|---5-5-5-5--4-4-4-4--1-1-1-1--4-4-4-4--| 
Eb|---------------------------------------| 
 
 
Now for the CHORUS, play the MAIN RIFF (it's written up above) 
 
 
Okay, now come the leads.  I'm not putting them up now cause I haven'd  
figured them out yet. 
If I decide to figure them out, then I will add them on to this tab.   
But for now on, you'll 
have to settle with the rhythm riffs for them: 
 
Rhythm during the 1st lead: 
Bb|---------------------------------------| 
Gb|---------------------------------------| 
Db|---------------------------------------| 
Ab|---5-5-5-5--4-4-4-4--1-1-1-1--4-4-4-4--| 
Eb|---5-5-5-5--4-4-4-4--1-1-1-1--4-4-4-4--| 
    pm---------------------------------- 
 
For the second lead, play RIFF 666.  If you've already fortotten what it  
was, it is writen at 
the top of the tab for your viewing pleasure.  Continue playing this  
riff (RIFF 666 in case 
you forgot within the past 2 seconds) throughout the entire 3rd verse.   
Then before the 3rd 
CHORUS Guitar Whichever plays RIFF B.L.A.H. twice, and during the 2nd  
time, the other guitar 
plays these chords: 
 
Bb|-------------------| 
Gb|---7---6---3---6---| 
Db|---5---4---1---4---| 
Ab|-------------------| 
Eb|-------------------|  
 
Okay, to end the song the guitars play 
Bb|------------------------------ 
Gb|--------7-----------8-------- 
Db|-----5----5-----6------------ 
Ab|--5----------5--------------- 
Eb|------------------------------ 
 
Key: 
/ -slide from indicated fret to indicated fret 
\-opposite of / 
pm - palm mute.  I use "-" things to notate the palm mutes. 
~ - Vibrato the string 
"Let Ring" - this means hold the notes as long as you can!  If you let  
go, you will DIE!!!! 
Uhhh.......oh yeah.  One more:  (0) - this means hold the note

Kind of Guitar-B.C.Rich Warlock (black w/ yellow lightning) 
 
This song is tuned down 1 1/2 steps 
I only know the letters for standard 
tuning so pretend it's in standard.... 
 
This, of course, isn't perfect, it's 
just the way I play it at home. 
 
\-Slide Down 
/-Slide Up 
.-Palm Mute 
(1)-The brackets mean to let it ring, not to pick it again 
~-Vibrato

That's the whole song, just follow along and you'll get it. 
You don't have to look back at another riff or anything 
it's all there. Have fun. If there's anything anyone wants 
to correct then send me an e-mail at ss-3@slayerized.com
