Destroyer by Buckethead
from Day of the Robot

tabbed by Doug Cartwright (hashislegalised@hotmail.com)

I was inspired to tab this song after seeing a video of Praxis Live and I realised how great it is.
I promise there will be more of this song tabbed by me, this is just a work in progress.
The main reason I sent this in prematurely is because this riff crushes!!
I think it's the 'Exhaust Release' riff, which comes in somewhere about the middle-ish.

I'm not sure on the tuning because I've yet to actually play it with the cd, I just worked it out when I was noodlin' about earlier. I have a feeling it's in Eb though. I promise I'll work the rest out soon :)

A couple of times he won't PM the 5 , just listen to it to see when he does it.
The little diddy things in the middle with the delay, I don't know right now. I might get back to them.
