Lateralus Tab
This tab is 100% correct, taken from several live videos, this is exactly what he plays.
It's very tricky at first, but with practice it sounds great.
Any questions E-mail me @ [email protected]

Legend:  

h- hammer on,
p - pull off
pm - palm mute
x - mute
 - slide,
v - vibrato
b - bend, 

*Distortion for this song = Boss MT-2 and ME-50 users(mt-2 setting), Drive 3/4,
bass 1/2, tone 1/2. 
That should give you the closest sound.

About the artist behind Lateralus Tab:

Tool is an American rock band that was formed in 1990 in Los Angeles, California. The band consists of drummer Danny Carey, bassist Justin Chancellor, guitarist Adam Jones, and vocalist Maynard James Keenan. Tool has won three Grammy Awards, hosted worldwide tours, and produced albums which have performed well on international music charts.[1]

The band emerged with a heavy metal sound on their first LP at a time when the genre was dominated by thrash metal, and later reached the top of the alternative metal movement with the release of their second LP, ├ćnima, in 1996. Their efforts to unify musical experimentation, visual arts, and a message of personal evolution continued with Lateralus (2001) and their most recent album, 10,000 Days (2006), gaining the band critical acclaim and success around the world. Due to Tool's incorporation of visual arts and relatively long and complex releases, the band is generally described as a style-transgressing act and part of progressive and art rock. The relationship between the band and today's music industry is ambivalent,[2] at times marked by censorship and the band members' insistence on privacy.[3]
