    This is at around 4:00 of Dark Horizontal (off their new album Relentless Mutation).
    I have been trying to figure out what the heck is going on. Here's a stab at the tabs (sorry for lack of any sort of rhythm, I'm just trying to figure out the notes):

    Some parts I feel pretty confident about, others not so much. I can only play it at about 50% speed right now! How in the world are they playing this?!

    I saw them live but I don't remember exactly that part. I'm just as baffled as you are, though. Good luck!

    I've also wondered about this part. Its just too nuts. I don't think they have played this one live yet unfortunately, but i am gonna go out on a limb and say that 4:00 - 4:04 is definitely tapping (some super fast tapping with the pick at 4:04) and then at 4:05 some super quick sweeps.

    damn, good on you for learning it, sounds like the hardest part on that album for sure. the beginning of the first line of that tab looks kinda off tho, it sounds more like an arpeggiated power chord to me. everything else looks like it's good (though i can only tell by sounding it out very slowly as i am not a robot from the future, like them)

    I get lessons from one of the guys one or twice a month when they're home from tour, maybe I can get them to tab it out for me and I'll post it up

    that’d be great!!! or maybe he can just play it a bit slower and you can film it? that’d waste less of your lesson time and would be enough for us to tab.

    We name all of our riffs, and we ran out of ideas for this riff so Tobi just drew a picture of a dog on the white board. So, this riff is known as "a picture of a dog."

    I'll put together a video demonstration if you guys like. :)

    Was thinking about this thread the other day. Question about a difficult piece of music. The actual artist comes in to answer and nobody replies.

    I just take the easy route and cry in a corner. Much easier than ever trying to do this at full speed.
