This tab is 99.9% correct, all others are bullshit. I found it in "Guitar World
march 1997". ****Check the article at the bottom of this file.****
I suggest that you download SlowGold at http://worldwidewoodshed.com , it's a 
great tool which will help you to slow down the solo so you can clearly hear 
every note.

  h - hammer on
  p - pull off
  b - bend 
  r - release bend
  x - muted note (or Rake)
  / - slide up
  \ - slide down
  v or ~ - vibrato 
  t - right hand tap (eg. t10)
  ^ - Harmonic (eg. ^12)
  P.H. - pinch harmonic
  N.H. - natural harmonic
  P.M. - palm muted note

Tuning for this song:
tune down 1 1/2 steps (low to high: C# F# B E G# C#)

Guitar World / March 1997
Best solos of '96
Dimebag Darrell:
"Flods"(3:50-5:01)
Pantera, The Great Southern Trendkill

"Damn! This is a total honor, man. It's a trip!" exclaimed the "jenovah of the
hangova," Dimebag Darrell, when we informed him that he'd been voted Most 
Valuable Player in our latest Readers Poll."It feels real good and I appreciate 
it. I guess "most valuable" means that I haven't let anyone down on record yet- 
and hopefully not live either! Please tell your readers I'm real flattered and 
would obviously like to say a big-assed 'thank you' to all of 'em that voted for 
me.
"One of the things that makes the 'Floods' solo come across like it does is 
Rex's bass playing behind it," Dime points out. "He's almost playing a whole 
lead on his own and he did it in one take, dude! He's using his fingers and he 
plays a whole bunch of cool lick and shit in there. And all those factors 
definitely add to the vibe and feel of my solo 'cause I'm playing off his part a 
lot - it was a great foundation for me to build upon."
When asked about the catchy, arpeggiated theme he uses to fill the first eight 
bars of the solo, Dime reveals: "That particular solo was thought-out in a more 
orchestrated fashion than the ones I played in 'Drag the Waters' or 'Cowboys 
from Hell', where I'd just start ripping right off the bat. It seemed 
appropriate to start off like that and then build and build and build and then 
climax with the big harmonic squeals at the end," he continues. "The whole thing 
fell into place real easily and naturally. It just kind did what it did!"

As you can see, the theme in question is based on root-five-nine interval 
pattern or motif which Darrell applies to each of the following notes: C#, A, F# 
and B to imply a four-bar chord progression of C#m(add9)-A(add9)-F#m(add9)-
B(add9), which is then repeated. For added color, Dime embellishes the end of 
each root-five-nine motif slightly different every time, using chord tones such 
as the third, fifth and/or seventh of each root, all in the key of C# natural 
(Aeolian) minor (C# D# E F# G# A B). He also uses lots of pinch harmonics (P.H.)
to further spice up the proceedings. To fatten up the sound of this eight-bar 
intro, Dime doubled the part: " I picked up the idea of doubling leads from 
listening to Randy Rhoads when I was a kid," he says.
The doubling stops at the end of bar 8 and just one guitar plays the soulful 
passage that fills the next three bars using the C# minor blues scale (C# E F# G 
G# B) with ninth (D#) added. Then, at bar 12, two other guitar lines are added 
for the short descending three-part harmony run based on C# natural minor. "The 
third one was pretty low (in terms of pitch) and we mixed it down a bit so it 
wouldn't sound too overhelming," Dime states. "I didn't sit there and go, 'let's 
play a third here and fifth there' when I worked those parts out, though. I just 
grabbed the notes I heard in my head.
"Right out of that three-part thing I go into that upper-register stuff almost 
an old Lynyrd Skynyrd-style thing, where I was using right-hand taps (bar 13). 
They probably wouldn't have used right-hand hammer-ons to play that lick, but I 
thought playing it that way sounded cool." Our helpful tour guide adds, "I 
doubled this part too but a little more lossely this time."
And as for Dime's trademark whammy baraided harmonic squeal that finishes the 
solo? Don't be surprised if you can't duplicate the CD version exactly using 
just one guitar. "For the big climax note I think there's four guitars goin' 
on!" Dime laughs. "There's a squeal at the 2nd fret of the g string, a squeal at 
the 5th fret of the G string and then I used the Digitech Whammy Pedal on two 
string squeals at the harmonics at the 4th and 12 frets of the G and B strings, 
I believe. Once again, it was one of those deals where I didn't plan it out. I 
just sat there and fucked with it until it sounded right."
