Comments:
This is a COOL song, probably my favorite from Crawl to China...but
it's pretty darn hard to play correctly.  As per usual I'm simply
writing down the riffs, not how many times they need to be played.
That much you should be able to easily pick up from the song itself.
That said, grab your guitar and get thrashing.

Symbols used:

p = Pull off
h = Hammer on
/ = Slide up
\ = Slide Down
X = Muted Guitar Scratch

Opening Riff (play the X's only in the beginning of the song)

This riff is used extensively through out the song, and this is
my interpretation of the pattern, you may think of another one to be
more accurate.

This is another extensively used riff...and when you slide down
from fret 5, quickly slide down to fret 2 and then let go.  This
produces the desired sound.

I didn't tab out the so called "Surf" part, mainly beacause I can't
figure out what the heck is going on during it.  Way to go Tourniquet...
I'm totally stumped on that... :)

Only play this pickup the first time, then just repeat this part as needed.

This part is to be played overtop of the end of the riff above
it by a second guitarist.

        This is very straitforward timing wise, but the coolness in the 
recording comes from the different chugging and open notes.  Chug on the
"C"s and play quick open chord on the "O"s.

Same chug pattern as previous riff, just transposed a bit.
Well, there you have it...Stumblefoot demystified, at least a little
bit anyway.  Those are pretty much all the riffs you need to play the
song, minus the surf part and the solo.  Any questions, comments, or
corrections are welcome.
