Scrolls of the Megilloth
Mortification
From the album "Scrolls of the Megilloth"
1992 Intense Records
Frontline Music Group

This song, to some people, IS Mortification. One of my favorite
songs to hear live. Tune your guitars to C sharp. Please don't count
the number of notes I put down and expect that to be the right amount.
Come on. This is grind (and it was tabbed on an accoustic). Have fun.

Here's a little hint: when you play something this fast, put your
fingers in the form that you use for power chords and just play the
indicated notes with your first finger (but you already know this,
being the incredible Christian guitar player that you are). 
This way, if you hit the wrong string, it won't sound bad. And just
the pressure of having your other finger there will add a little harmony.

When you listen to the CD, it will seem like there are two guitars,
with one playing a higher part. That high part is  the sound of the
pick hitting the strings. You usualy can't  notice it, but when you
play really fast, like on this song, it stands out.


After the organ plays for a while guitar1 comes in with Riff a:

Ah, yes, the good ol' days of Mortification. That last part is the
only area where you can play something different than what is indicated.
If you can't figure out other ways to play it, e-mail me and I'll see
what I can do. Remember that this song is copywrited, which I guess gives
them special rights. I don't really know, but I think that you aren't
allowed to play this in public or something.
Oh Well.
