El Scorcho Tab
Explanation:
I've seen a lot of versions of this, but most of them seem to be not quite right.  This
how Rivers plays it.  I watched him play it in a video and figured it out.  I don't know
the parts to the second guitar.  It does a lot of weird random crap.

You basically are just playing the power chords from the chorus, but you pick the
individually.  And it just repeats through the whole song.  Sometimes you can palm mute it
verses or just pick more softly to make it more quiet and let it roar during the chorus, 
the second guitar plays the power chords for rhythm.  I guess you could also play it
and then switch to distortion.  Remember to give that certain string some vibrato.


Tuning: 1/2 step down
| /  slide up
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| 0  play open string
| b^ bend up
