Ok you guys here is my version of Soothsayer. It is in the key of C and is played a half step flat.
I hope a better guitarist can use this to build a better tab, but that is what I have.

I tabbed this shortly after watching one of Buckethead's videos, then listened to the song for little tweaks here and there.

Oh, and don't forget to tune your guitars one step down kiddies!

No more for you! >:)
Generally easy song, and it blows your friends away.

The first part is how Buckethead plays it live, but as for the second part with the rake, I'm not sure. But it works!

Any questions, or anything else please e-mail me.
