Dude!!!
Slipknot is easy!
I'll tell you how to play a song(forget the name)from there new album on this post!

1.Put your guitar down(you might damage or mis-use it)
2.Stand at the top of your stairs and kick your mother(father,brother,sister,friend)down them for buying you slipknots "music".If YOU purchased it then throw yourself down the stairs.
3.If it was downloaded,you must destroy the hard drive of the computer as it most likley has infected it with a worm("maggot" if you will).
4.Buy a cheap guitar or borrow one from a friend(assuming they enjoy slipknot as well.)
5.Ok,this is where we play the actual song...Carfully stand at the top of the same flight of stairs you threw another person or yourself down.Plug into a 10-15 Watt Crate combo with everything set at ten(on the amp).The guitar cable must be at least the length of you steps.Make sure your bridge pickup is selcted and tone and volume knobs maxed.
Now,Fling that guitar down those steps.It will make plenty of grainy noise and the notes that are sounded wont reach beyond the 5th fret.You have just played EVERY slipknot song.
6.pick up your M-10(great guitar for the price)and learn your basic chords,scales and some songs to start of with that will challenge you and improve you playing...
Purple Haze(Jimi hendrix)
Fade To Black(mettalica)
Stairway(no pun)To Heaven(Led Zepplin)
Crazy Train(Ozzy)

You are now on the road to being a very talented guitarist...repeat all the above if needed.

also check out bands from record labels such as...

Relapse,earache,metalblade,century media and empire records.

have fun!

Later! \m/

Yea slipknot songs are pretty easy....mostly just down tune your guitar to B-F-B on the last three strings and play slightly muted power chords on the 1st and 2nd frets...LOL:D

Now now, lets not encourage self-injuring...be careful people! Knowing the average Slipknot fan they will probably try whatever you suggest and take a pic of their tortured self for your pleasure....

ROFLMAO!!!

That's hilarious. Sh*tknot does suck, but let him have his own opinion.

How long will it take you to learn the song depends on how you practice? If you practice just that song and you've never played guitar, maybe a week or two, maybe a month, maybe a year. Depends on how fast you learn and what you are really practicing. Try learning a variety of songs not just ones by certain bands, it will improve your overall playing.

there songs are really easy but the practice routine mick showed in the guitar magazine is a killer..u guys say they suck..hey obviously they dont to some other wise they wouldnt be selling albums..y do u people have to bash bands so harshly..i mean comeone, ive bashed tihngs but not liek sayin "sh!tnot" its like ur jealous cuz therer were they are and ur not
most songs wont take long but the vast majority of their tabs are wrong..learn them by ear
