    Default Wtf is this shit?

    i got a slipknot chord and tab book for X-mas, and i can't read any of the shit on it. and when i manage to play it, it dosn't sounds anything like it.
    i think it might be bass but idk. I'll post pics of what the tabs look like in a couple mins.

    I'm guessing it's sheet music and not tabs.

    ^ Sheet music for slipknot music? Is that really necessary?

    I'm not sure, but Slipknot would probably use Drop-D tuning aswell (or something lower), which can also make songs sound completely wrong if you dont realise it.

    The most probable reason would be the downtuned guitars they have. To tune your guitar to drop d tuning your low e string needs to be one octave lower than your open d. To achieve this make you open e string's 12th fret harmonic the same note as your open d string.
    I don't need a signature.

    No, slipknot isn't all drop d. In fact the majority of it is lower.

    Slipknot = Drop B

    Look at the tuning and play the tab..

    You're playing slipknot, you have already failed at music.
