SLAYER 
                               P O I N T 
                From their '98 album 'Diabolis in Musica' 
 
Tabbed by:  Jason Mathie 
            Mathie@unixg.ubc.ca 
 
A great song with a great structure. 
 
Comments: 
 
I will only show the bottom four strings throughout this tab. 
 
Instead of simply showing palm muting, I will show heavy palm muting and 
light palm muting, using H.M and L.M rather than P.M. 
 
Notation explanation: 
     /=3=\ 
  |---------| 
  |--0-0-0--|  Triplets.  Play 3 notes where you would normally play 2. 
  |---------| 
 
  |5:-| |2:-| 
  |8:-| |4:-|  Time signature changes.  All bars are 4/4 otherwise. 
  |---| |---| 
 
  |---3-/5--|  Pick the 3rd fret, slide to the 5th and pick it as well.   
  |---------| 
  |---3//5--|  Pick the 3rd fret and slide to the 5th. 
 
  |---------| 
  |---5"----|  Tremolo pick - double pick very quickly 
  |---------| 
 
Generally one dash is a sixteenth note in length.  So ---- is one beat. 
Sometimes there's a lot of double digit fret positions or notation  
symbols so I have to stretch it out more.  When that happens I'll use 
8 dashes one beat. 
 
Guitars are drop-Db tuned, which means tune to Eb but drop the sixth 
string to Db.  Hanneman is the LeftGtr and King the RightGtr.
