3|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
4|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
5|----------7------------------3\2-------------7-------------------3\2-------|
6|--0---0------6---0---0---0---1\0-----0---0-------6---5---0---0---1\0-------|
|-------------4x-------------| |--------------8x-------------|
When playing the F5-E5 pulloffs, the E5 is not strummed.
* Skip the F5-E5 pulloff on the 8th repetition

I dont really understand what to do at the 3/2 nor do i understand what it means
1/0 section

when it says- When playing the F5-E5 pulloffs, the E5 is not strummed.
* Skip the F5-E5 pulloff on the 8th repetition

is it two pull offs at once? im lost

thanks for the help

It's a 2-string F5 powerchord sliding down to an E5

0

really off topic
but what exactley is a power chord?
#4
The root and 5th of a chord, usually the bottom 2 notes of a normal open or barre chord. There's no 3rd so they're neither major or minor in tonality, just kind of neutral sounding and they also tend to handle distortion better. Technically they're not really chords at all as there's only 2 distinct notes.

You'll heard them in pretty much all Rock and Metal. The shape in Standard is the root note then two frets up on the next string. (and Steven already explained it in technical terms.)

okay on the E5 section
would you just slide down to the second fret and pull off from the first fret on the sixth string?

cause i just realized you cant slide to 0...

You say this is in the intro of the song.... I don't remember any of this.

Is it incest or masturbation?

It's not incest, but it's not masturbation.
It'd be closer to incest than masturbation, but I don't think there's a word for it.

Incesturbation?

No, that tab is right, you need to listen to the intro more carefully.

In this video that riff starts at about 0:35 or very soon thereafter: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=jRYDetbwegs

In technical terms I'd probably play that with 2 pulloffs rather than any sliding, just to get the fret hand moving more fluidly rather than having to slide one finger down past the nut.

Yes, that would also work. Come one man, apply some common sense.
