"Martyr" is the hard—hitting opening song on Soul of A New Machine and
it (for me) sets the tone of the rest of the album. It is my favorite
song on this album.

For the most part, the song is not extremely difficult. It has it's
tricky parts but for the most part, a decent sense of rhythm should
navigate you through the song. Enjoy!

Tune all strings down a perfect fourth (B, E, A, D)

Note: the number of pick strokes here is sort of
arbitrary, but I made my best guess as to how
many there are actually there; just pick each
note for an appropriate length of time.
