i got it all tabbed out here in an old guitar magazine. it's in 18/8 time. i don't really know how to count that out

B__DAWG 38 days ago
i guess it'd be 18 8th notes per bar

Good stuff. Those first couple records are wild.

When you get into something 18/8 I think your supposed to break it down into like divisions of 3 or 6 to keep count. But I don't know. I can barely play in 4/4

i was just thinking why can't you do 3 bars of 6. that's 18. but that first riff is weird. repeats weird. i'll never understand music

i just like finding old tabs in guitar magazines and then following along while listening to the song. not even playing. just reading it. it's pretty nerdy
